Are you passionate about important social topics and silenced voices? Can you see robots taking over the world, or creatures trying to steal each other’s land? Science fiction and fantasy are generative spaces for social justice dialogue. Considering such writers as Octavia Butler, N.K. Jemison, and Margaret Atwood, we will be inspired to write stories that immerse readers in worlds that illuminate today’s injustices. Start a novel or strengthen one already begun, or even finish a short story during this weeklong exploration of new ways to see writing as resilience and breaking silence.
