Writing Your First Interactive Story with Twine

Bandersnatch, right? Whether you loved it and wanted more or you thought the gimmick was cool but could have been better executed, you're in luck! 

It's just one example of the vast and decades old medium of Interactive Fiction. Come get a brief history of this rich but often overlooked community and start making your own right away, whether it's a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure full of thrills, or an interactive poem about a sentimental scarf, or a visual novel about charming queer monsters in love. 

In this workshop, we will be learning the basics of Twine, a free tool at the heart of Bandersnatch's (and countless others') choice system, while we write our first interactive text! No coding required! But if you're into that kinda thing, you can totally add code to do whatever you want >:) 

💞 Come see what makes this format such an accessible way for marginalized people to tell their stories 💞
