Crypto- and Xenobiology and You: How To Build a Better, More Believable Beast, Using SCIENCE! With Seanan McGuire

Join prolific, award-winning, and overall amazing writer Seanan McGuire for a two part workshop where anything could happen, but we’re pretty much guaranteed a few sightings of her cats. Session #1 (time) will cover creating monsters, aliens, and more using biology, while Session #2 (time) will expand on the first session to teach you how to go further and build believable cultures and societies for your creatures, using the same principles.

This is a two-session workshop taught on consecutive Sundays, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific time, December 9 and December 16, 2019.

Cost is $149 for new students; $129 for former Rambo Academy students. If you want to sign up for a single session, cost is $99/$79.

Live classes are taught online via Google hangouts, are limited to 15 participants, and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane. A webcam is strongly suggested but not required. If there is an on-demand version of the class, you will be provided with a free coupon for it, so you have access to those notes.

To register for a class, send e-mail with the following details:

  • The email address that you use for Google stuff.
  • Which class or classes and the dates.
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, or some other means.
  • Please identify yourself if you are a returning student or support Cat on Patreon to qualify for the special rate.

You should receive confirmation of your registration within 48 hours.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has a slot reserved for such a student, and the sole criteria is that you can’t afford the class but really think it would be useful for you. To apply, mail me with your name, the class name/date, and a brief statement about why you want to take the class. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarship recipients will be notified the week before the class.
