emerson-smpKevin Emerson once competed in a beauty pageant and lost (probably because he was wearing a suit of armor). He loves Dr. Who and My Little Pony (he has two little kids, so it’s okay, right?) He prefers his sandwiches cut in triangles (obviously). He once appeared in a Swedish television commercial, and he knows that the real hero of the Star Wars movies is Wedge.

2014 Workshop: Create Fantastic Worlds and the Heroes to Save Them!

In a far off land, in a strange new world, in a terrifying future… these are the words that tingle our sense of adventure! We all travel these worlds in our minds, and imagine ourselves as heroes in them. In this workshop, we’ll learn how to build those worlds on the page, and how to create the perfect character (who is sometimes the most unlikely) to save the day. We’ll discuss strategies for how to make a world and a character that are so unique that only one person can tell their story: YOU!
