Machine Project announces its very first online writing workshop. Taught by Mark von Schlegell, author of Mercury Station and Venusia (Semiotexte), the class will explore experimental science fiction through readings, discussions and writing workshops. Drawing on readings from the Book of Elijah through to Samuel Delany and beyond, the course will explore how science fiction as a genre works and how to push it to its limits. Students will also write and submit original sci-fi writing in an online workshop and receive feedback from their peers and from Mark.
