From Dracula to Lisbeth Salander to the Wicked Witch, speculative fiction is full of characters we love to hate and hate to love. A well-crafted antagonist or questionable protagonist can make a story memorable. In this course, we will examine memorable villains and antiheroes in fantasy, science fiction, horror, and mystery and talk about creating believable motivation for the unrelatable. Bring your own speculative fiction work to discuss.


ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam’s fiction and poetry has appeared in over 40 magazines and anthologies both literary and speculative such as Clarkesworld, Hobart, Lightspeed, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Her fantasy novelette “The Orangery” was a finalist for the 2016 Nebula Award. Released in 2015, her collaborative fiction-jazz album Strange Monsters centered on the theme of strong women making unconventional choices. She also created and coordinates the annual Art & Words Collaborative Show in Fort Worth.
