Class Description: We will do genre improv in the style of the writings of Philip K. Dick. You'll be required to read 3 actual short stories and wikipedia summaries of 4 novels. You don't need to know PKD going in, but you should have a general interest in doing sci fi stuff. Our scenes will play the tropes of: magical drugs, changing reality, evil governments, divorces and dumb names for protagonists. Application class: you sign up and then we will pick students based on experience level. We may email you to ask your experience level! (Please note: No class on Oct 1st)
