About the Black Academy
The Black Academy of Storytelling is an autodidactic learning establishment, like the Library in The Haunt, but with a narrower, more concerted scope.
Asher founded the Academy as a means of studying the craft of storytelling. It also underscores Asher's maxim: "I would never found school at which I refused to study."
The Academy has courses of study in short story, long form fiction, non-fiction storytelling, cocktail stories, corporate storytelling, and storytelling for performance.
The BlackAcademy has been wildly successful. Asher graduated as its first Fellow, but continues to study within it frequently.
