SummaryExplore techniques to create alternate narratives that center formerly unheard voices with Nisi Shawl.
DescriptionDo you want to write in a world in which justice triumphs? This class will help you show your readers its roots. With discussion, examples, and exercises we’ll explore techniques in research and re-imagination that speculative fiction authors use to center formerly unheard voices and create alternate narratives--even alternate timelines--when writing about the living, changing past.

Nisi Shawl wrote the Tiptree Award-winning collection “Filter House” and the Nebula finalist and Tiptree Honor novel “Everfair,” an alternate history of the Congo. She’s a founder of the Carl Brandon Society and a Clarion West board member.
Class NotesLibrary events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Please bring a pen/pencil and paper or fully-charged laptop to each class.

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.

The Seattle Writes series is made possible with the generous support of The Seattle Public Library Foundation and the Amazon Literary Partnership. Find more Seattle Writes programs and resources here.
