All Writers are Thieves: An Online Speculative Writing Workshop

Learn how to lift ideas from the headlines, fairy tales, or the annals of history and make them your own.

It is often said that good writers borrow and great writers steal, but no one ever tells you where to steal from or how to pull it off. This speculative writing workshop from Write Pittsburgh sets out to rectify that little oversight. We’ll be exploring various sources of inspiration for speculative writers (scientific discoveries, fairy tales, and more) as well as the techniques for ethical (i.e., non-plagiaristic) thieving such as changing perspective or synthesizing disparate sources.
