Writing Fantastic Fiction: Fantasy and Sci-Fi
Lifelong Learning

Explore ways to use familiar language and reality to create the new or transformed worlds of fantastic fiction --including fantasy, science fiction, fabulist, surrealist, speculative, or fairy tales. We'll look at folk and fairy tales to teach us about designing the shape of a story; read different published fictions to ponder why and how we might weave magic into the reality of a world; experiment with exercises that will help us describe imaginary cultures, unlikely geography, and impossible technologies, and, of course, we'll write. Throughout the class, you'll draft, discuss, and revise your own fantastic fiction. What new ways of seeing will you discover in order to bypass the limits of space and time to visit foreign worlds of your own creation?
