As a writer, I am always on the lookout for opportunities to improve my craft and grow as an artist (feels so strange to call myself that). That’s why I was thrilled to discover the Futurescapes Writing Workshop, an immersive and interactive experience that takes writers on a journey of self-discovery and growth.
I had the pleasure of participating in the workshop for the first time in 2021, and it was an absolute game-changer for me. The Futurescapes Writing Workshop is an innovative and engaging program that provides writers with the tools they need to succeed. Whether you’re a seasoned author or just starting out, this workshop is designed to help you continue to grow in your writing craft and create a writing community.
Since Futurescapes season is starting up soon, I figured I would take this time to talk about my experiences with Futurescapes.
What Is Futurescapes Writing Workshop?
The website describes the Futurescapes as “an intensive, exclusive workshop, offering writers an unparalleled chance to work with top authors and agents in speculative fiction (science fiction, horror, fantasy, paranormal).” Our next workshop will be our “long manuscript” workshop, where students will work with four amazing faculty and workshop the first 3,000 words of their manuscript.”
Futurescapes has quite a few workshop offerings throughout the year, with the main workshop in March ,and faculty led classes to support those workshops.
What Sets Futurescapes Writing Workshop Apart?
What sets Futurescapes apart from other writing workshops is its focus on the art as well as the community. The program guides writers through the process of providing feedback on the work of others as well as how to accept and use the receive you receive. Through interactive exercises, personalized feedback, and expert instruction, the workshop helps writers to hone their craft and bring their stories to life.
Another standout feature of Futurescapes is its supportive and inclusive community of writers. The workshop provides a space for writers to connect, share their work, and receive constructive feedback from their peers. I was truly amazed by the level of support and encouragement that I received from the other writers in my workshop, and I know that these relationships will be invaluable as I continue on my writing journey.
But what really sets Futurescapes apart is the quality of its instruction. The workshop is led by a team of experienced and talented writers, editors, and publishing professionals who are passionate about helping aspiring authors succeed. Their expertise, guidance, and encouragement are second-to-none, and I felt truly inspired and empowered by their words.
