Science fiction and fantasy push the limits of imagination. Like all stories they need engaging plots and unforgettable characters, but success often turns on getting full value from a fresh premise and building engaging and believable worlds. This class will include exercises, exploration of genre short stories, writing, and critiques. The focus will be on the short story – with the intent of producing a completed work by the end of class – but those working on novels, novellas, and poetry are welcome.
PETER ANDREWS has sold dozens of short stories in science fiction and fantasy. His Zombie Chic was recently optioned by a Hollywood producer. Peter is a graduate of the Clarion Writers Workshop, where his teachers were Damon Knight, Harlan Ellison, Peter S. Beagle, and Kate Wilhelm. He has worked professionally in PR, and as a Web producer, speechwriter, and radio producer. Currently, he is a full-time, independent writer of speeches, articles, and blogs, including the popular How To Write Fast Blog.
