Into the Mirror-Verse:  Writing Technology, Fantasy, and the Future 

Whether it is the mind of a machine or the voice of the monster, what can speculative poetry reveal about ourselves and our world? In this generative workshop, we’ll discuss what speculative poetry is, and through several exercises, explore how science fiction, fantasy, or alternate history can take our poetry writing to new and unexpected places.

3 hours on Saturday  |  July 8  |  12-3pm ET  |  $120 ($96 for Members)

All are welcome, space is limited. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Please email with any questions.
