Class: How to Subvert Cliches (and Supercharge Your Creativity)

Instructor: Tobias Buckell

Next class date: Sunday, March 28, 2021, 1:00-3:00 PM Pacific Time.

Our world values innovation and originality, so how do you know if your work is original enough? Where do you find the spark that makes you stand out? Can you transform the mundane and familiar into something new and exciting? How do you find new ideas?

In this workshop we will look at ways to take the familiar and stretch it into something new with a set of exercises and methods to unlock fun new combinations and ways of thinking about where ideas come from, and even the craft of writing on a sentence level. Bring pen and paper! 

Classes are taught online and require a reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.

Cost is $99 ($79 for Patreon supporters and former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions).

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • Which class or classes and the dates you are registering for.
  • Remind me if you support me on Patreon or have already taken a class with me so you can get the special rate.
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, Venmo, or some other means.
  • If you’re a new student, please let me know how you found out about the classes!

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for multiple classes.
