"Science fiction frees you to go anyplace and explore anything." - Octavia Butler

From speculative fiction to romance novels, thrillers to mysteries, horror to hybrid writing, genre fiction gives us a chance to tell stories in a new way. Our workshops and seminars in genre fiction provide writers a dedicated space to discuss the craft of the genre and receive feedback in a supportive environment.
