From structure and worldbuilding, to writing about animals and the non-human, and ideas for rewiring genre, this exciting course will explore a range of techniques and approaches to writing about environmental crisis, and offer new perspectives on many of the challenges it poses.
Leading this course is award-winning novelist and essayist James Bradley. Over the past decade Bradley has emerged as one of the leading voices in this field, writing extensively about climate catastrophe and environmental crisis in acclaimed novels such as Clade and Ghost Species, and a growing body of essays and articles about the natural world and climate change. His work in the field has been shortlisted for a range of major literary awards, nominated for a Walkley, and twice-shortlisted for the Bragg Prize for Science Writing.
This is a unique opportunity to reimagine the place of writing in an increasingly unrecognisable world, and to find new ways of responding to the challenges of climate crisis in fiction.
