Nisi Shawl is an award-winning author of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. They also make delectable, unique, and magical teas. Spend time with Nisi learning how they buy, dry, cut, stir, and steep the best cup of tea. Join Nisi at the home of board member Susan Gossman in Queen Ann.

Includes a signed copy of Nisi's book Everfair.

From their Tor.com article, Nisi describes their process. “I classify myself as a tea lover rather than a connoisseur because the recipes for my blends are based on personal experiences and the emotions they arouse, not on knowledge. When I combine camellia leaves with heaps of flowers and pineapple pieces and bits of twice-baked vanilla beans, I do so with my heart as much as with my head.”

About Nisi:
Nisi Shawl is the author of Everfair and dozens of short stories, many of which can be found in the James Tiptree, Jr. Award winning and World Fantasy Award nominated collection Filter House. They are the co-editor of Stories for Chip and Strange Matings: Octavia E. Butler, Feminism, Science Fiction, and African American Voices. They edit reviews for The Cascadia Subduction Zone, a literary quarterly from Aqueduct Press. They are a founding member of the Carl Brandon Society and have served on the board for the Clarion West Writing Workshop.

Nisi developed the Writing the Other workshop with Cynthia Ward, and has taught it for over a decade in person and online.

Limitations:
This class is good for the winning bidder and up to 3 friends. Must be redeemed within one year of auction date (expires 10/21/23). Can be scheduled in person, with everyone vaccinated, or virtually anywhere.
