SDFutures: Imaginative Writing for Teens

Summer 2020




Imagining fantastic worlds and the future has never been more important.

It’s how we expand our sense of what is possible. It’s how we change our culture, save our planet, and make stories that create better futures for our loved ones and ourselves. This summer, we’re inviting San Diego–area teens to join us in exploring the power and potential of one of our most powerful human capacities: imagination.
SDFutures is series of online courses to help young people write science fiction and fantasy stories by developing their skills, meeting other young writers, and stretching their imagination with incredible professional writers of speculative fiction as guides. 
Our instructors include:

Rebecca Roanhorse · Minh Lê · Kali Wallace

Lilliam Rivera · Patrick Coleman · Leah Thomas

Jeanelle Horcasitas · Olivia Quintanilla

If you know a community group, teacher, or young person who would benefit from this opportunity, please feel free to share.
