    Exclusive SPACE: 1975 Writing Workshop

    NOT OFFERED ANYWHERE ELSE!
    "How to Write Historically-Focused Science Fiction," taught by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch!

    Science fiction writers often mine the richness of history to create stories, and this special 3-week workshop will teach you how. PLUS, for the third assignment, you get to write a story for possible use in the SPACE: 1975 book!

    In SPACE: 1975, writers take the events, mood, clothing, and culture of the 1970s and spin off science fiction stories, creating a fantastic historically-focused anthology. In this special workshop, Dean and Kris will show you how to take an event, a time period, a mood out of history, and turn it into a great story. For example, Kris took the fear and worry of Apollo 8 going around the moon and turned it into the award-winning alternate history tale “Recovering Apollo 8.”

    This workshop is offered only through this Kickstarter campaign. You can choose to take it starting October 6 or November 10, 2020. DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

    Includes:
    • "How to Write Historically-Focused Science Fiction" 3-week course
    • Chance to write story for SPACE: 1975 book
    • Ebook copy of Space: 1975
    • Backer Hall of Fame Listing
