Speculative fiction—a broad category that can include science-fiction, fantasy, horror and literary spec fic—is a powerful platform for expressing ideas. A writer can create a world in which to tell any story, build a bespoke world rather than create a story within the constraints of the “real” world. Story is bigger than the world.

You will learn

  • The power of speculative fiction
  • Ways to use speculative fiction in your own work
  • How to build a world for your story and characters
  • Genres within speculative fiction and the importance of understanding genre conventions of each
  • The end game: getting your speculative fiction edited and published
