The Whallonsburg Grange presents a Writers Lyceum Series entitled “Fact into Fiction.” The lectures will occur on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. throughout March.
The authors will be discussing the challenges and opportunities of writing about science, history and real people in novels and stories. Among other topics, they will talk about how they develop and research ideas; how science, real events and people constrain their writing; and the role of “themes” in fiction.
On March 17 explore the topic with Kathryn Cramer. She An editor and author of “hard” science fiction, Kathryn has worked with many writers who integrate concepts of science into fictional future worlds. She has edited some of the most respected anthologies in science fiction and fantasy writing, most recently the 2014 collection Hieroglyph: Stories and Visions for a Better Future.
