One reason many readers choose speculative fiction stories, instead of mainstream stories, is to escape their everyday realities and be transported other worlds. And because these worlds exist only in the writer's imagination, without true connections to the world we live in, the task of creating seemingly realistic and cohesive speculative fiction settings can often be a challenge.
During our May 3 meeting, our panelists will guide you through a discussion and exercises on creating speculative fiction settings that leave lasting impressions with your readers in much the same ways as the characters in your stories.
Panel: Kurt Schweitzer, Eric Scoles, Lynn Spitz, and Ted Wenskus
Moderator: Alan Vincent Michaels
Location: Barnes & Noble, Pittsford
Meeting Time: May 3, 2016 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
