Session 1: Speculating Wildly - Getting Started with Spec Fic

  • Gasworks Arts Park (map)

Speculative fiction is the best, because you can write about almost anything! But speculative fiction is also the worst, because you can write about almost anything! How do you figure out what is and isn't spec fic? How do you get started? Writers Andrew McDonald (Son of DeathReal Pigeons) and Ben McKenzie (Night Terrace, Amateur Hour Apocalypse) kick off the day with an intro to speculative fiction and a bunch of starter ideas - including how they created some of their favourite stories! (Seats Available: 30)
