Speculative Fiction

In July and August I helped to organise two workshops with Mark Lewis on the topic of speculative fiction. The workshops focused on sci-fi and fantasy writing, respectively. These are two genres I’ve never written in before, although Daniel O’Malley’s The Rook is one of my favourite books, and could only be described as fantasy (although I thought at first I could get away with calling it magical realism – it’s a fine line!).

I wrote four flash fiction pieces as a result of these workshops, which have been shared with the other members of Didcot Writers in the usual way (we have an online space where regular members can share their work to get feedback and so on), and which will be shared in my newsletter, Rise and Shine, over the coming months. Sign up on the left to be the first to see these new works.
