Sci-fi Genre (Middle years)

Writing sci-fi


We're going to do impressions of some different writing styles, including golden age sci-fi, casual world-building, alien reports, and stories for younger readers. To give us something to write about, we'll use this picture as inspiration.

A family in space suits on Mars.

What exactly is science fiction?

We'll do five exercises. For each exercise, you'll get a snippet in a particular style, and then an example showing how you could apply that style to the image.  

Once you submit, you’ll be able to read and react to responses from others in your group. 

If you're ready, let's write!
