A rapid-fire evening of craft and creativity as stellar UBC professors teach key writing concepts in 5 minutes or less. Try out concepts, ask questions and listen to UBC students in this interactive, unpredictable crash course. Covering everything from fiction to nonfiction, comics to poetry, playwriting to YA and even song lyrics, you’ll take away key learnings from genre experts and experience what being in a UBC Creative classroom feels like. (There might be homework!) Once school’s out, celebrate your new skills with an open social event immediately afterwards.
