8-Week: Intro to Speculative Fiction (Zoom)

Science fiction: stories that envision the future and humankind's relationship to technology. Fantasy: stories based on myth and legend with the intent to delight. Horror: stories based on myth and legend with the intent to scare. All three of these speculative genres offer writers the opportunity to explore the human condition by putting a funhouse mirror up to our society. In this intro course class, we'll analyze modern speculative work to learn how it works, write some of our own, and workshop one another's speculative pieces.

Writers in this discussion-based course can expect some in-class writing and written and verbal feedback from the instructor and your peers. Workshop will be centered around each writer's intentions for the piece, with the aim to be constructive without being harmful, focusing on questions rather than critique.
