Ginny Chanda offers science fiction writing workshop

Val "Ginny" Chanda, local author of Psy Mind: Book One: Deadly, will conduct a writing workshop on crossing science fiction subgenres on Saturday, March 24, 2 p.m., at The Well Red Coyote bookstore.

Science fiction has broken free of its traditional genre boundaries. Mystery, urban fantasy, paranormal, steampunk, dystopian future - these are some of the story elements that are now bringing an exciting cross-genre identity to science fiction writing.

Chanda will explore writing in these new directions in science fiction. She will look at the techniques involved in these sub-genres individually, and how they come together in today's exciting new science fiction writing. Not only does genre-bending, which is still the rage in publication today, allow writers to add great new tools to their writing toolboxes and to use them in new ways, it allows them to market their books in multiple genres to a wider range of readers than ever before. It's not your father's science fiction!

Chanda is now Emeritus Faculty at Yavapai College where, as a full time instructor, she taught introductory and advanced classes in creative writing.

The Well Red Coyote is located at 3190 W. Highway 89A, at the corner of 89A and Dry Creek Road. For more information, call 282-2284 or go to
