On Thursday October 1, 2020 8:00-9:30pm AST, Influential blogger, journalist, and author Cory Doctorow joins Thea Lim and Catherine Hernandez in conversation with Stephanie Domet about how writers engage with the often crisis-laden news of the day. Presented with support from Arts Nova Scotia and Access Copyright Foundation, Writing into an Uncertain Future is part of the AfterWords Literary Festival, a series of conversations, readings, and workshops taking place live on Zoom from Sept.30-Oct.4.
Okay, yes, the future is always uncertain. And for sure, it seems even more uncertain now than it did last year when we dreamed up this panel. And maybe you’re sick of contemplating the uncertain future—so let this panel of speculative fiction writers do it for you! Join Cory Doctorow, Thea Lim, and Catherine Hernandez in conversation with Stephanie Domet about how writers engage with the often crisis-laden news of the day and imagine possible outcomes of and perhaps even solutions to some of the pressing environmental, social, and technological issues that we face.AfterWords
