INSTRUCTOR: CASSANDRA CLARKE / DATES: OCTOBER 22ND-DECEMBER 3RD
Do you take your fiction with a side of aliens, superheroes, dragons, or witches? Then this is the workshop for you!
This course will provide an overview of the SFF genre. Together we will consider those elements of writing which are crucial to crafting compelling speculative stories, such as building our own worlds, extrapolating the fantastic from reality, and creating compelling non-human characters. In addition to discussing classic and contemporary SFF works, you will participate in writing exercises and bring in your own work for critique. Come to class prepared to write and discuss, and by the end of the six weeks, you will have completed at least one SFF short story.
