I am looking forward to offering my Cli-Fi workshop at the Sierra Writers Conference this year!
Saving the World One Word at a Time; Writing Cli-Fi – Cli-Fi is fiction with a mission: to inspire change by raising awareness of the climate crisis. There are times when fiction can engage conscience more effectively than nonfiction, by exploring conjectured outcomes in inventive ways. Cli-fi can reach people who might not otherwise be receptive to climate change issues. This workshop is designed to facilitate creative expression in an informative, supportive environment using PowerPoints, discussion, writing prompts and facilitated feedback of participants’ writing. The focus is exploration and discovery of each person’s unique writing voice as they delve into the Cli-fi genre.
