Taught by award-winning science fiction writer Karl Schroeder, this two-day workshop explores the mutual influence of fantastic writing and visual arts. Using the works on view as starting points for narrative development, participants will learn the mechanics of writing and refining a speculative short story, resulting in an original piece of fiction that may be published in the online journal Switch On.
