Led by Marie Vibbert. Her work has appeared in Analog, Asimov's, F&SF, and many other professional publications. Her short story "Keep Talking" won Apex Magazine's Story of the Year. Her first novel, Galactic Hellcats, is out now. Her work often reflects her blue-collar background.
From Le Guin's "The Dispossessed" to Newitz's "Autonomous", science fiction has often grappled with the future of work and the worker's place in society.
We'll look at a selection of works from throughout science fiction history and discuss how the ways we imagine work have changed over time.
YOU'LL TAKE HOME:
- Awareness of great works of science fiction that grapple with work
- An understanding of the state of class-consciousness in today's speculative fiction that may help the student enter the conversation in their own work.
- And some further recommended fiction reading, too.
TAKE THIS CLASS IF:
- You're finding the constraints of your current writing practice too limiting.
- You want exposure to a range of new approaches to bring to your writing practice.
- You want an expanded sense of what is possible in your work.
This class will meet via Zoom on June 27th, 2021 from 5:30PM - 7:30PM EST
You can pay for the course in full or use Affirm to pay over time with equal Monthly Payments. Both options are available at checkout.
