This workshop will delve into defining the (speculative) genre and its subgenres before branching into various topics like world building, tropes, plot and characterisation. This workshop will explore what makes (speculative) such a compelling genre to write in and how creative elements come together to write interesting and thought-provoking stories. This workshop will be a mixture of presentation, short writing exercises and discussions that will enable you to think more about your own book and ideas.
