Writing workshops and courses in April 2016: love stories, children's stories, and sci-fi/fantasy



We had a good run for our first set of storywriting courses this year. A big thank you to all our students! We enjoyed hearing your stories. A special shoutout to Maryowni, Bien, and Emman who took the entire set and finished their chosen story, from premise to basic editing, in 30 hours of intense training.

While that set covered general storywriting principles, our courses in April are specific to either a genre or literary form. Each of these will introduce you to some storywriting principles as well but will only focus on the ones that are applicable to the topic at hand. Below is the list of courses.

How to Write Love Stories

How do two people fall in love? When can we say that someone actually is in love? Heck, what really is love? Going beyond the classic love story formula, we’ll look into the core of romantic relationships, extracting the principles that’ll have audiences rooting for your characters.

How to Write Sci-fi/Fantasy Stories

How do you create your own imagined world with its own creatures, rules, and mythos? How could you introduce that world to your audience? How do you build a story within that new world? By the end of this three-hour crash course, you'd be able to build your own sci-fi or fantasy story that's not just about dragons, vampires, dark forests or magic, but about letting humanity take center stage.
P1,550 (P1,250 if registered and paid before Apr. 30)



The above courses will be taught by six-time Palanca Awardee, Dr. Joem Antonio and held at Goldland Millenia Suites, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
