Join local SF writer Jerri Jerreat in an online writing workshop on how to set your work of science fiction in a convincing future.

Perhaps you have a fun story, or a great character, or a strong problem to build it around. In all types of science fiction, building a believable and interesting futuristic world is critical. This could easily apply to a future on another planet or moon. Join us and play around with creating your own fascinating future! We will focus on eco-fiction (solarpunk), a future where we have managed to deal with today's global environmental crisis -- somehow. Make sure you have a way to take notes -- a laptop, a tablet, or even paper and pen -- because we're going to have some fun.

Jerri Jerreat has an MFA in Creative Writing and taught Creative Writing for six years at St. Lawrence College.  Her stories have been published in the two Glass and Gardens solarpunk anthologies, Nevertheless: Tesseracts Twenty-One, and a dozen literary journals including The New Quarterly and The Yale Review Online.

This interactive online presentation will be held on Zoom. Registrants will be emailed the link immediately upon registration. (Please check your Junk and Spam folders right away if you don't see the confirmation email and link in your Inbox, then adjust your settings to make sure emails from KFPL aren't blocked.  You can also access event links by scrolling over the calendar icon at the top of the main page of our website and signing in to My Events.) 

Participants will need to download the latest version of Zoom in advance to the device they’ll be using during the workshop. 

Registration for this workshop will close at 1 PM on Saturday October 23.
