What makes science fiction different from other genres? Does it - and should it - present a mirror into our own world? And why does so much SF incorporate dystopian themes? This workshop seeks to use critical analysis to explore such matters. It will also incorporate writing exercises and introduce the skills needed to create an original and believable SF world.
Jo Zebedee is the author of five novels, including the highly regarded Inish Carraig, which presents a dystopian post-alien invasion Belfast.
