How it works

Join utopian speculative fiction writer and educator, Arwen Spicer, for a fun and inspiring workshop to explore your values as a basis for an inspiring, realistic social vision by working with human nature, human needs, and ecological reality. One-on-one consulting is also available.

To schedule a workshop or inquire about consulting, contact me and include your name and a brief description of your project or goal and needs. My base rate is $50/hour for one-on-one consulting and $100/hour for workshops. A sliding scale is available, and I am happy to consider splitting proceeds with charities and non-profits on a case-by-case basis.
