Apocalypse Now: Turning Disasters into Blockbusters

June 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Instructor: Adam Roux
Cost: $60 Members | $65 Non-members
Sunday, 6/04/17 | 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM

Why do natural and man-made disasters fascinate us so much? Contemporary fiction is filled with riveting stories of how humans have survived or been annihilated by catastrophes such as climate change, earthquakes, and nuclear war. In this seminar, we’ll examine how writers address the high-octane anxieties of our time then find our own approaches to these concerns through the craft of short fiction.

Adam Roux is currently pursuing his Master of Fine Arts at the University of Virginia, where he teaches fiction. His work has appeared in Litro.
