Interactive fiction is a hybrid form, a combination of storytelling, writing and video games. This 12-week program will offer peer mentorship, guidance, and technical support to anyone who wishes to develop an interactive fiction piece. Like a writer's circle, the group of participants will use the weekly structure as a way to make progress on their work and to gain feedback, insight, and inspiration. All are welcome. No registration required.

Founded in 2009, the Hand Eye Society is one of the first video game art organizations of its kind in the world. It is a Toronto not-for-profit dedicated to supporting and showcasing video games made primarily as a form of creative expression. The Hand Eye Society aims to provide exhibition opportunities, education, creative support, mentorship, knowledge sharing and inspiration to artists, enthusiasts, and the game-curious in Toronto.
