Speculative Fiction: Kevin Brazil, Ama Josephine Budge, Sara Saab, Sophie Mackintosh
 
Tuesday, August 4, 19.00 p.m. (BST).

 

Kevin Brazil’s essay ‘Fear of a Gay Planet’, published in The White Review No. 28, interrogates the utopian possibilities – and dangers – of science fiction’s reproductive fantasies, from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s Herland to the work of Octavia Butler, Lois McMaster Bujold and William Burroughs. He is joined by writers Ama Josephine Budge, Sara Saab and Sophie Mackintosh to discuss fictional world-building and the radical potential of speculative thinking.

 

The event will be hosted via Zoom and is free to attend. Please register via Eventbrite here.
