Literary Techniques for Speculative Fiction with Cat Rambo
October 3, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST
The next available session of Literary Techniques for Speculative Fiction is on Wednesday, October 3, 4-6 PM Pacific time.
This class combines lecture, discussion and in-class writing exercises designed to introduce a number of techniques to use in your own writing such as foreshadowing, alliteration, rhythmic device, allusion, etc, and ways to test them out in short fiction as well as discussion of when and where to use them. We look at several existing pieces to see how and why they work, and discuss why the author chose the techniques that they employed. The class concludes with a discussion of markets open to literary genre work and how to submit to them.
Classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.
