Do you think every story is better with a robot? Should animals be able to talk, people be able to do magic, time be able to be traveled (in all directions)? Then you're in the right place. Join us for a 4-session class that takes a deep dive into speculative fiction with readings, analysis, discussion, prompts, and craft techniques that will help you develop your own fantasy, hard or soft science fiction, fabulist, weird, magical realist or otherwise speculative story.
