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 (http://www.supercoolbooks.com/)). He will introduce his free story development guide, The Official 100 WRITERS Story Workbook (download free PDF here (http://www.supercoolbooks.com/2015/10/100-writers-free-download-official-100.html)), 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:
