If your writing contains out-of-this-world elements or the suspension of disbelief is key to your project, this workshop is designed to help you craft plausible speculative fiction. From space invaders, underworld adventures, to the supernatural, we will examine examples and strategies that make the impossible believable. Bring a concept or project overview to discuss. Fiction.
