Seminar: Writing Speculative Fiction

Instructor: Edward M. Lerner

Cost: $125 Members | $139 Non-Members

Saturday and Sunday, January 23-24, 2010 | 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Love science fiction or fantasy? Writing for these markets requires all the basic authorial skills—and much that’s unique to the genres.

This intensive, two-day seminar examines what makes speculative fiction special. We’ll explore such techniques as world building, presenting the really other (aliens and elves), and the use of genre tropes. And because one goal of writing is to be read, we’ll also look at marketing speculative fiction and what to expect after the sale.
