Explore the contribution fiction and creative non-fiction make to the development of ideas and human exploration at a creative writing workshop.
Writer Helen Kenwright explores examples of science fiction and other forms of speculative fiction which have highlighted possibilities, raised human ambition and hope, or simply imagined different worlds we can explore or work towards.
After watching a video, you’ll imagine your own infinite horizons and create your own pieces of exploratory writing. You’ll then have chance to take part in a live Q&A with Helen on Twitter at 2pm. Please use the Twitter handle @hnkenwright
