Three Saturdays: January 22, 29, and February 5, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. EST Online

$115.00 (10% off for members)

Join us for an introduction to speculative fiction, a broad genre encompassing science fiction, fantasy, supernatural, horror, and other stories containing fantastical elements. Participants need not have any prior experience in these genres. Together we’ll read through the anthology in segments, discussing an array of stories that demonstrate how contemporary authors like Ken Lieu, Sarah Pinsker, Tochi Onyebuchi, Kate Elliott, Yoon Ha Lee, K.T. Bryski, Senaa Ahmad, and Yohanca Delgado are examining human lives and relationships through alternate realities.

Class will meet online in three separate Zoom sessions lasting two hours each. Before the first meeting, and in between meetings, students will read assigned stories, which we’ll discuss in class. Participants will prepare for rich discussions by submitting brief written reflections on the stories that most interest them.

Three Saturdays: January 22, 29, and February 5, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. EST Online
