Sci Fi/Fantasy Conference
Take Your Sci-Fi or Fantasy Writing to the Next Level
Writer's Digest University is pleased to present a one-of-a-kind online event for science fiction and fantasy writers! On April 1st and 2nd, our 3rd Annual Science Fiction & Fantasy Online Writing Conference will provide expert insights from SIX award-winning and bestselling authors on the finer points of how to write within the science fiction and fantasy genres. Spend the weekend learning techniques for honing your craft from six different published authors*, then (if you choose) pitch your novel via query letter to a literary agent specifically looking for material in these genres. The agent will provide you with a personalized critique of your query - and maybe ask to see more.
CONFERENCE BENEFITS: 
•  SIX all-new, one-hour webinar presentations provided by award-winning and bestselling science fiction and fantasy authors*, all examining different aspects of writing novels in these genres. Each session will include an opportunity for live Q&A with the authors!
•  A critique (with written feedback) of your query letter from an agent with experience in the science fiction and fantasy genres.
•  A bonus 90-minute On Demand webinar covering how to write a query letter so you're prepared when pitching your novel to agents. (A $79.99 value!)
•  The ability to network with fellow science fiction and fantasy writers via discussion boards that will be open throughout the weekend. Share ideas, and even your work if you choose.
•  Unlimited OnDemand viewing! All conference sessions will be made available for download in the week following the live presentations. Even if you can't attend every session live, you will be able to view each lecture on your own whenever you choose.
CONFERENCE SESSION OUTLINE:

*Our craft-focused conference schedule is designed to provide the kind of education that all science fiction and fantasy writers can use to take their work to the next level. The following sessions are confirmed for the event.

All That Glitters: Building a Believable Magic System
 by Charlie N. Holmberg
Do you tie down your magic with rules, or take it off the leash and let it roam free? Whether using a rule-based (limited) magic system or a free-roaming (unlimited) one, establishing the believability, originality, and world-building of magic is key to creating stories as methodical and real as Sanderson's, or as sweeping and artistic as Tolkien's. In this class, we'll not only discuss the differing concepts and roles of magic systems, but factor the implications of a magic system into the world surrounding it. 

Lessons From the Pulps: How to Write Bestselling Science Fiction and Fantasy
 
by Philip Athans
What can the classic era of pulp fiction magazines teach the contemporary science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror author? Examples from the pulps can remind contemporary authors to write to entertain, surprise, and delight their readers. After all, the current bestselling fiction authors in every genre, if taken back in time to 1936, would be writing for the pulp magazines. This 60-minute seminar will cover fiction as entertainment, why the villain starts the story, why the hero ends the story, and more.

Merge Complex Science Seamlessly Into Your Fiction
 by Joe Hart
Complex science can be one of the foundations of your novel, but how do you make it interesting and engaging to your readers? In this 60-minute segment, bestselling author Joe Hart provides examples and tactics to meld complicated science concepts into gripping storylines that sell. 

Using the Real in Your Science Fiction and Fantasy
 by Philippa Ballantine
The usual writing advice "write what you know" doesn't seem to apply to speculative fiction, but in fact our world can certainly inspire and inform you writing. Learn how to incorporate our real world into your science fiction and fantasy.

Science Fiction vs Science Fact: How Far Do You Go in the Science and When Do You Focus on Storytelling?
 by Tee Morris
Science fiction is hard. Really hard. That may sound like an understatement, but when writing in the genre, you need to decide how far you want to go in showing your research into the pros and cons of generation ships, how gravity wells work, and the physics behind a lightsaber. In this session hosted by award-winning science fiction author Tee Morris, we discuss the fine line between knowledge and education against character development and storytelling.
 

Strangers in Strange Lands
 by Max Gladstone
World-building and character are different sides of the same coin-especially in science fiction and fantasy. No matter how intricate a world you create, your protagonist will reshape it with her will and action; no matter how vivid a character you draw, they'll be shaped and limited by their context. How have great works of fantasy and science fiction dealt with the interplay between character and setting? How can you exploit contrasts between character and setting to generate theme and conflict-or to put new spins on old settings? And how can you use these techniques to orient the reader, who is always, herself, a stranger in our strange lands?
