Writing for a Shared Universe
Learning how to write in other people’s worlds—yet make the resulting work your own—is among the most important skills a professional writer can master. Decorated comics scribe Fred Van Lente will teach you how to apply your abilities to work in any company’s shared universe—and, not only that, together, as the class, we will create a shared universe of our own!
