[LAB] Story-coding with 100 WRITERS: how to create your own story

AV8 Media
#4-28 Waterloo Centre, 261 Waterloo Street, Singapore

Theme: #storytelling #fiction #microfiction #narrative #writingcraft #storycraft #hacking #socialmixer #fun #networking 

Join us for this story-coding session where we focus on the craft of developing a simple story franchise from scratch. This will be useful for anyone developing cross-platform story experiences, whether print or digital, text or multimedia, and even live performances.


This session will be facilitated by Singapore writer Don Bosco (Super Cool Books). He will introduce his free story development guide, The Official 100 WRITERS Story Workbook (download free PDF here), and story-coders will get hands on experience in applying this to your own story idea. (See programme below.)

StoryCode Singapore is a community partner of the 100 WRITERS project. More information and story writing resources here:
