Tell Us What We Don't Already Know - How Genre Fiction Tells The Truth

Through genre fiction, we can learn more about our world than we think possible. Fantasy and science fiction can show us political insight, teach us about the dangers of damaging our environment, even give us ways into understanding the human condition that would otherwise be impossible. In this workshop we'll look at famous examples from fiction, and look at how you can use your own writing to examine these issues through genre.
