OVERVIEW

Summer of 2018 - Speculative fiction and Philosophy

July, August, September

Narrative and philosophy have always enjoyed a close relationship, but with the advent of genres such as science-fiction, fantasy, and horror, this relationship broke new ground. Also of note is how speculative fiction has taken philosophical issues mainstream through the use of modern medias, including television shows, movies, and video-games. With speculative fiction, the diversity of philosophical ideas, approaches, and solutions can boggle the imagination for newbie and expert alike. During this quarter, we’ll explore the speculative works of prominent voices and creators as we seek to uncover the hidden and expand upon the known.

OVERVIEW

Community Writer's Workshop - Prose and Poetry

 

The writer's workshop typically has around 50 attendees a week, divided into 7-10 separate groups of about 5-8 individuals each. While a diverse mix of writers attend, our workshop structure allows for the pairing of participants with similar literary intentions. There are focused tracts for poets, novelists, speculative fiction writers, and more. Writers of all skill levels, educations, and intentions are welcome to join. In addition to Tuesday's discussions, critiques, and open mics for prose and poetry, participants are welcome to submit stories for a yearly anthology, or to submit poetry for a poetry blog.
