Writing Alongside The Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy 2020

All Levels | Each week, we will read and discuss at least two stories from BASFF 2020. Lesson plans will focus on story elements such as worldbuilding, character development, time management, information release, and more. In-class exercises and writing prompts will help students emulate what they have read and apply the skills we discuss in class.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
