writing workshop Join us for this writing workshop focusing on fantasy and science fiction writing, but open to writers of all genres. Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction: Once considered fringe genres, fantasy and science fiction have produced some of the most important literary and entertainment works of the 20th and early-21st centuries. Have you ever considered taking readers into the farthest reaches of the galaxy, the deepest depths of the enchanted forest, or the darkest corners of cyberspace? If so, then we invite you to join Naugatuck-based genre author Patrick Scalisi as we discuss the specific hallmarks of fantasy and sci-fi before picking up our pens to write from a few speculative prompts. Patrick Scalisi is a journalist, magazine editor and emerging author from Naugatuck, Conn. He has published fiction in several magazines, including The Willows, Neo-opsis and ReadShortFiction.com, among others. His short stories have appeared in a number of fiction anthologies, including An Honest Lie Vol. 2, Shadowplay and Penny Dread Tales Vol. 1. Pat also had the opportunity to serve as the guest editor of The Ghost Is the Machine, a bestselling anthology of steampunk-horror stories from Post Mortem Press. His debut book, The Horse Thieves and Other Tales of the New West, was released in July 2014. When he's not writing, Pat enjoys watching way too many movies than are good for him, reading more books than he has shelves for and listening to music (his tastes range from classical to classic and modern rock).
