Literary Cleveland says
Speculative fiction is not just dragons and vampires and spaceships. In this workshop we will discuss how to write stories that broaden the definition of the genre and approach more closely our personal visions of science fiction, fantasy, magic realism, and dystopia. We’ll follow up with some exercises as a way to open up the fictional world to a sense of surprise and invention.

Charles Oberndorf is a graduate of the Clarion Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers' Workshop. His three science fiction novels were published by Bantam Spectra, and his short fiction has appeared in Full Spectrum, Asimov’s Science Fiction, and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. His novelette, “Another Life,” was reprinted in Years Best SF #15. He’s the Chi Waggoner Chair in Middle School Writing at University School and has moderated the Public Fiction Writing Workshop at Cleveland State University.

Mary Grimm has had two books published, Left to Themselves (novel) and Stealing Time (story collection) - both by Random House. She teaches fiction writing at Case Western Reserve University.

Speculative Fiction: Divorcing The Tropes takes place Saturday, Jan 28 from 10a-12p at Loganberry Books, 13015 Larchmere Blvd ($15 / $12 members).
