‘Fantasy and Speculative Fiction’ Workshop with Liana Joy Christensen

‘Fantasy and Speculative Fiction’ Workshop with Liana Joy Christensen

Fantasy and speculative fiction are particularly valuable genres because they allow the writer to slip the moorings of the “real” and set sail into the realm of the imagination.

This workshop examines some highly successful examples of both short and long form fantasy and speculative fiction in order to illuminate some of those skills and techniques.

There will be several short writing exercises to allow participants to devise generative “What if?” questions and begin to stock their imaginative writing toolkit.

The workshop is suitable for the simply curious as well as people who are already engaged in writing fantasy/speculative fiction works.
