8-Week: Speculative Fiction Workshop

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

In this workshop, we’ll explore the realms of the irreal—finding the narrative possibilities that open up when we let go of our stranglehold on “objective reality.” We’ll look at examples of speculative fiction and discuss differences between science fiction, fantasy, fabulism, magical realism, and surrealism, and in dissecting them come to understand both why and how they do what they do. Finally, we’ll all try our hands at our own forays out of realism (or do deeper explorations, if you’re already familiar with the territory of the irreal).

Courtney is an amazing instructor who clearly loves teaching and knows speculative fiction very well. She addressed both conventional science fiction and the more radical speculative world in this class. Her deep understanding of imaginary worlds is inspiring and contagious.
