I am interested in convening around the common denominator of science (STEM) in our writing, including but not limited to science fiction. A good question to ask yourself might be: does your creative writing involve scientific research (however formal or informal)? Or, are you channeling your scientific education or expertise into your creative writing? I am a science poet (sometimes speculative), and I've also worked with science writers across genres. Participating in creative workshops, as an editor, and as an educator, my focus is on STEM writing, literary, and creative communities. If you have workshopping experience and you are interested in incorporating some scientific element(s) into your craft, let's build a supportive workshopping collaboration!
Meeting for a weekly workshop, I suggest:
1. Selections of work-in-progress (1,000 words or less) are distributed to the group three days in advance for review.
2. Meetings involve the option for each author to read aloud and receive comments from the group. Guidelines for feedback will be discussed and agreed upon by the group and adjusted as needed.
