Lunch & Learn - October 11

Lunch & Learn:
Creative Horror Stories/Magazine Critique

Despite all our best efforts, sometimes a feature article, cover image, or even a whole publication can go sideways into nightmare territory. We’ve collected a few real-life examples to inspire problem-solving brainstorms and solutions-oriented workshopping for this interactive Lunch & Learn session. Working through these true tales of woe submitted by your peers will help you gain the flexibility and resilience you’ll need next time crisis strikes. Submit your own anonymous story here:
