Where The Sea Meets the Shore
Genre and literary fiction often seem to be colliding with, sometimes deriding, each other. But truth be told, the distinction between them is a lot blurrier than either side would admit.
In this workshop, we will:
- Look at literary techniques and how they can be applied in speculative fiction
- Talk about literary markets open to speculative fiction and speculative markets open to literary fiction
- Discuss subgenres like slipstream, bizarro and magical realism
- Analyze examples from the best writers in the field and use them as the basis of writing exercises
So here’s my question – if you were going to a workshop about using lit fiction techniques in spec fiction, what would you want to find out or do?
