Writers will learn the definition of near future as it pertains to science fiction, how to create the elements of a compelling near future science fiction story, including setting (creating the near future world), plot (asking “what if?”), theme (why tell this story?), characters (the heart of the story), and science (integrate, don’t lecture!). While this presentation will focus on science fiction specifically, there are lessons here that writers of all genres can apply.
