Creating Modern Utopias:
Take a ride into futurity on H.G. Wells’ Time Machine and create a science fiction of your own using some of his traditional techniques. In this fun seminar, we’ll study some of the first time traveler’s literary tricks and try them out ourselves, by building a ‘world of our own’ with a series of short writing exercises. Tips for transporting your reader into this world of imagination are included in a workshop suitable for experienced creative writing students or keen beginners.
Join Dr Alison Habens, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Portsmouth for her Creative Writing & Science Fiction Workshop, as part of Being Human 2016.
