Building Better Worlds Writing Workshop @ Tubby & Coo's | New Orleans | Louisiana | United States
This is a 10-week intensive writing workshop focused on the intersection of social justice and writing science fiction and fantasy. Participants will learn how to build and analyze their own fictional worlds and characters without causing harm to real-life groups of people. We will delve into the real-life consequences of representation in fiction, the writer’s ethical responsibility, and the importance of intersectionality as it relates to science fiction and fantasy writing. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, videos, reading, writing exercises, and critiques, writers will put what they learn into immediate practice. Participants must be at least 21 years of age.
This workshop is not worth college credit. Work will not be graded.
