Join us for a workshop by prolific writer and astrologer Alice Sparkly Kat on speculative art and narratives of boundaries!

Too much of the time, we think of our boundaries as contracts that we must be responsible for negotiating and upholding. However, boundaries are something that we learn as babies! We learn boundaries through sensation, through play, and through imagination. 

If speculation is about our ability to change through uncertainty, then boundaries must also be speculative. Mapping Boundaries Using Speculative Fiction is a writing workshop about boundaries as story. It is not limited to literary or professional writers but is for anyone who uses writing to stay alive.

This workshop is definitely generative, so come ready to write! Attendees will have the opportunity to share their work and participate in discussions of writings and contents of the workshop.
