KSP Writers’ Centre | Workshop | So You Want To Write Speculative Fiction?

Explore the boundless possibilities and power of speculative fiction to tell realistic stories in ‘unrealistic’ worlds. Whether you’ve always written speculative fiction or you’re just trying it out for the first time, this workshop, facilitated by Jess Gately, looks at the common strengths and pitfalls of the genre, and the similarities and differences between spec-fic and other genres, to give writers frameworks to work within.

Target audience: Writers interested in exploring the genre of speculative fiction.

She was notably the first Australian novelist to gain international recognition for her 1915 novel, The Pioneers, which won the prestigious Hodder and Stoughton All Empire Literature Prize for Australasia. She was also wife to the famous Anzac hero, Hugo ‘Jim’ Throssell VC, and a controversial political activist and advocate for peace.
