Writing Speculative Fiction

Explore the boundless possibilities of speculative fiction with Jess Gately.


Jun 3, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Centre for Stories

How can we build realistic worlds when they’re full of dragons, spaceships, ghosts and aliens? How do you build your world without info-dumping? And how do you make a sprawling epic feel close and homely to a reader?

In this three-hour workshop with Jess Gately we’ll explore the boundless possibilities of speculative fiction, how the genre offers a window to humanity, how worlds are built, and even more importantly how they’re presented to readers.

Perfect for writers of all stages, whether you’ve just started writing, are half-way through a project, or are revising a story.

Bring along a notebook/note-taking device and be prepared to write!

You are welcome to bring your own breakfast or snacks to eat during the workshop. There will be two small breaks of 15-20 minutes throughout the workshop.
