In this session, we'll be writing visionary fiction, which Walidah Imarisha describes as "an all-encompassing term for any fantastical art (speculative fiction, horror, magical realism, fantasy, etc.) that might aid in creating social change." We need spaces, she writes, "both real-world and digital, that allow us to imagine beyond the limits of what we are told is possible if we are to build liberated futures." Let's grow our collective capacities for imagination and social change by writing some visionary fiction together!
