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.
