The Culinary Speculative
Nibedita Sen - One Day Workshop
Food is integral to every aspect of our lives, which also makes it a powerful tool that can do everything from propel world-building to unlock character in fiction. What are the ways in which hunger and magic can interact? What will futuristic technology change about the way we farm our crops and grow our meat? How can we use food to evoke culture and sensory detail, while also avoiding pitfalls of exoticization or Othering? Through a mix of short lectures, exercises, discussion, and excerpts from published work, we’ll try to figure out how to make readers keep coming back for more.
