Lucy Sussex Speculative Fiction class

Speculative Fiction
with Lucy Sussex
Workshop: How do you speculate in fiction? Can you write science fiction without being a scientist? And how can crazy ideas be turned into credible stories? This workshop is aimed at beginning to intermediate writers of the non-realistic, the futuristic, and the fabulous. It will discuss and provide exercises in ideas creation, story development, creating an alternate world, and workshopping fictions. Writers are required to bring along a favourite example of science fiction writing, and a story idea. They are also required to submit a sample of their fiction (no more than 1000 words), prior to the workshop. Learn how to let your imagination play, and have the great fun of turning ideas into narratives.
