The event will serve as the conclusion to Multi-Sensory Storytelling: Creativity Workshop with Bird Box Author Josh Malerman, a four-day workshop for writers and teachers looking to improve their skills through a multi-disciplinary and digital approach to effective storytelling, facilitated by Josh Malerman and local Richmond artists. However, anyone is welcome to attend An Evening with Josh Malerman. 

The workshop is part of the Joan Oates Institute for Partners in the Arts, a program at the University of Richmond School of Professional & Continuing Studies that helps educators integrate creative practices and arts education into their curriculum, regardless of subject matter.
