Course detail: Speculative Fiction Creative Writing Workshop

This intensive, 2-week creative writing course, sponsored by the Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction, will be taught online by RB Lemberg, author of the acclaimed books The Four Profound Weaves (2020) and The Unbalancing (2022) and a finalist for a World Fantasy Award, the Nebula Award, and Ursula K. Le Guin Prize for Fiction. Lemberg will bring expertise in writing and publishing speculative fiction (an umbrella category that includes science fiction, horror, fantasy narratives, magical realism, and the like) to instruct students in the creation and polishing of their own imaginative work. Students will read and analyze contemporary short fiction for a greater understanding of aspects of craft, such as worldbuilding, character development, and story structure. Students will also participate in writing exercises and peer review workshops, so please come prepared with at least one short story or a chapter from a longer work that you are ready to share and revise.
