Enhance Image: Refining Visions of the Future through Genre Details
With Nick Mazzuca
When: Starts August 14
Science fiction is about creating new worlds, but to make those worlds authentic you need to fill in the details. Worlds are living, breathing things that shape your characters and present the challenges they must overcome. This workshop will dig into how various science fiction writers have designed their worlds. Workshop participants will use the tools they learn to refine existing manuscripts or to generate a new short story, and they will receive feedback from their peers and workshop facilitator.
