Uncanny Flash Fiction: Sinister Utopias and Magical Mega-Cities | Kids Out and About Rochester

Uncanny Flash Fiction: Sinister Utopias and Magical Mega-Cities

(AFTERNOONS: for ages 14+) What if hackers used magic? Or ghosts explored space? Maybe aliens have already come to Earth but live inside our smartphones. Some worlds are stranger—and faster—than others. In this class we’ll take fantasy and sci-fi world-building to a new level by combining it with flash fiction. Students will craft short works of uncanny fiction through a series of simple and exciting writing exercises.
