The Muse In The Machine: AI Writing In Practice

Love playing with words but feeling stuck? Boost your creativity at AI writing workshops with an award-winning video game writer Charlene Putney!

After an intro session with some fun reading, discussion, and co-creation, we’ll meet regularly to work together. Charlene will introduce new exercises, ideas, and forms with each meeting, and we’ll write! During each session we’ll create both small, group pieces, and larger individual works, all while partnering with AI, each other, and our inmost selves.

This 8-part series is hands-on and practical. You will walk away from every session with a piece of work. By the end, you’ll have an entire collection!

After each meeting, we’ll publish submitted works in our unique Substack, which will be co-published with the Interintellect Substack, boosting the visibility of your creations to the world.

We’ll explore a wide range of creative techniques like cut-up, Oulipo methods, prompting, writing partners, illustration as mirror, character creation, and worldbuilding. To make our writing even better, we’ll use a variety of free tools, including LAIKA, Narrative Device, Chat-GPT, and many more!

A randomly selected series attendee will win Rick Rubin‘s masterpiece, ‘The Creative Act: A Way of Being.’

Reading/Watching List:

All episodes take place at 8pm CEST
