Creating Science Fiction with Nina Munteanu at George Brown College

I am again teaching my workshop-style course on how to write science fiction this fall at the St. James Campus of George Brown College in Toronto, Canada.

Called "Creating Science Fiction" the 12-week course runs Wednesday nights from 6:15 to 9:15 starting September 17 through to December 3. It costs $278.

I run the course like a workshop with lots of students input and feedback on their WIP.

Course Description: Learn about what is involved in writing science fiction and getting it published. Explore the essential tools used in this genre (including world building, research and plot approaches), and work toward a publishable original work by learning to generate and follow through with premise, idea and theme.

Here's what some students have said about the course:

Nina is:
“Sharing, open, lively.”
“Always willing to answer questions. Very supportive.”
“Very passionate about teaching, with a great logical presentation that makes it super easy to understand the concepts. Excellent teacher! I never mark all excellent.”
“She is helpful, makes us work on our writing, and cares about us.”
“She is a published author and gave us insight into the business & writing aspect of science fiction so she has a lot of hands-on knowledge & genuinely loves sci-fi.”
What other courses would you like us to offer?
“Science Fiction 2 with Nina—I’d pay double. She was (by far) the best instructor I have had in 2 years and several Writing Courses at George Brown.” 

George Brown College is located on 200 King Street, Toronto, Canada.

See you in class!
