CRWT 236 Speculative Fiction

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Literature has been historically filled with ghosts, gods, magic, talking animals, and the
walking dead, and some of the most powerful and popular storytelling of our time has examined the
nuances of the human condition in our own future, in alternate realities, and on other worlds. In
this course, students will read and discuss different kinds of speculative fiction, and use
those influences to shape their work. They will learn techniques to help them bust through genre
tropes, explore their obsessions, and write their own supernatural or science fiction stories.
