Do you love testing your characters against environments, beings, and forces beyond our real world? How do we identify the conventions expected by readers of speculative fiction, and how can you bring your own creativity to subvert them? Come to this course prepared to workshop your own short stories or novel openings, to improve your craft with the goal of publication.
This class takes place in person at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Calgary.
