Climate change is our present and our future. Writing Climate Fiction in the Age of Climate Disaster is a six session creative writing course that focuses on writing stories that center climate and climate change.
Will all fiction become climate fiction? Climate change and climate disaster are such an ever-present reality that it’s becoming more and more difficult for any fiction writer to completely ignore it.
What is climate fiction? Is it literary or genre fiction? What are it’s common themes and tropes? How do you write a climate fiction story?
