Writing SF Like a Scientist
This class will help writers move from scientific research to a science fiction narrative -- covering sci-fi idea generation, accessing and organizing primary research sources, how to 'vet' scientific research, extrapolating ideas into fiction, creating plot, characters, and setting from a scientific premise, avoiding the 'As you know, Bob' effect, and discussions of current sci-fi themes, tones, and trends.
