my speculative fiction workshop has been filled. it's running in january for two days, and aims to introduce high school students from year seven to ten to the world of strange and subversive fiction that is in the speculative fiction genre, and which they won't usually find on a steady diet of lord of the rings and harry potter and all the similar work out there. i'm using speculative fiction as an umbrealla term, and beneath it is fantasy, science fiction, horror, and all the tiny little sub genres that spread out from these, including movies and poetry and comics, assuming it doesn't blow out to be bigger than the two days.
anyhow, it should be fun.
i've got a pretty good idea of the texts i'll be using, but if you want to suggest something, please, feel free.
