Course Description

Do you want to write a book?

In particular, do you want to learn about writing a book in the genre of Science Fiction, Space Adventure?

Do you love classic SF?

This is one of two courses in which I'm going to show you some of the familiar conventions and tropes of 20th century SF. I'm going to show you how to approach plot, characters, world and story to create a convincing, optimistic vision of the future, at the same time as a satisfying read. But I'm going to apply, as I expect you to apply, experience and judgment to those conventions and tropes. I'm going to show you what's wrong with the way that both classic and contemporary SF is written, show you how to adapt the tropes and conventions so they will be meaningful to readers.

You will learn:

  • What makes it SF

  • How to define your rules for following the conventions of SF writing

  • How Space Adventure world building depends on character and story

  • How to create the right kind of characters for Space Adventure

  • How the characters in Space Adventure interact

  • How to conceive and design the plot of a Space Adventure

  • How to bring drag this old genre into the 21st century

In addition, there are numerous practice activities to consolidate your knowledge and ensure that you can see how to put it into practice in your own novel writing.

All the images used in the course are either original or NASA images in the public domain.
