Attention writers: Free online course “The Future of Storytelling” starts soon!

Hey everyone! I don’t have much time right now, so I’ll just cut to the chase — I ran across this free online course (https://iversity.org/c/6?r=103aa) called “The Future of Storytelling”, and it looks really great for any and all writers, including yours truly.

It’s 8 weeks long, and the basic format is weekly videos plus lots of opportunity for interaction with other students. They’re going to cover topics like:

  • Storytelling basics
  • Serial formats (on the TV, web and beyond)
  • Storytelling in role-playing games
  • Interactive storytelling in video games
  • Transmedia storytelling
  • Alternate-reality gaming
  • Augmented reality and location-based storytelling
  • The role of tools, interfaces and information architectures in current storytelling

Anyway, it looks pretty darn useful — and fun! — so here’s the link again if you want to check it out:

Oh yes, and in other free news, the talented Misha Burnett will be offering his ebooks for free on Amazon this weekend, so click here to get a sneak preview:

That is all.
