New Intersession Course on Writing the Human in Science Fiction

For the Johns Hopkins Intersession, I'll be teaching a course on how to write believable human characters in the fantastical worlds of science fiction.  Through workshops and readings, we'll address questions of how to develop a realistic and believable character who inhabit worlds that may involve aliens, time travel, and intelligent robots.  As we do so, we'll be examining issues of how the physical form affects the spiritual and mental identity of the individual, gender and sexuality, and memory versus reality.

If you'd like to learn more about this course, take a look at our course website:  If you've already registered for the course, you can go ahead to the User Login to set up your profile on the assignments homepage.  You should have received the enrollment key via e-mail from ISIS.  If you haven't, please Contact Me so I can forward that on to you.  Be sure to include your full name in the online form so I can confirm your enrollment with ISIS.
