It’s All About Us: A Speculative Writing Workshop

What lies in your future? How will climate change, genetic manipulation, or artificial intelligence affect you in the decades to come? Many people think science fiction is all about the science, but it’s not–it’s also about us, our families and our communities. Developments in science and technology affect people of all genders, races, and nationalities, so we should all have a voice in exploring the changes we’ll face. Join us to start imagining–and writing–the world of the future!

Workshop Leader: Tara Campbell is the recipient of two awards from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities: the 2016 Larry Neal Writers’ Award in Adult Fiction, and the 2016 Mayor’s Arts Award for Outstanding New Artist. She’s an assistant fiction editor at Barrelhouse, and volunteers with 826DC and Artomatic. Her novel TreeVolution was released by Lillicat Publishers in 2016, and her collection Circe’s Bicycle will appear in fall 2017 from LitFest Press.
