I have been honored to be a panelist at a
Modern Speculative Writing Program!!!
Speculative Fiction is a genre of fiction that encompasses works in which the setting is other than the real world, involving supernatural, futuristic, or other imagined elements. It includes Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Magic Realism, and so much more. Speculative fiction writing takes the imagination as far as it can go, and then some.
Located in beautiful Rockland County (less than an hour northwest of NYC), the Haverstraw King’s Daughter’s Public Library is holding their annual comic convention, KingCon. Yes, the pun fits.
Taylor Voght, author and MFA at Manhattanville College, will be our moderator as we delve into what makes Speculative Writing so attractive, contemplate the nature of sequential narration, and share what inspires us to write as we do. Sitting beside me will be noted authors and editors Michelle Levy and Gerrit Overeem.
This is Haverstraw’s SDCC and NYCC, just without the mile-long lines!!
I hope you can make it. If so, stop by after the panel and say ‘Hi!’
