Canada Writes: A Sci-Fi Odyssey

From now until Halloween, we're celebrating all things science fiction at Canada Writes with mind-bending features and Q&As with Canadian sci-fi luminaries, fun challenges and truly intergalactic giveaways. 

Canada Writes has entered an alternate reality—where, from today until Halloween, we're immersing ourselves in Canadian science fiction (and maybe dipping a toe into speculative fiction as well).

What awaits us on our maiden voyage into the sci-fi realm? Stay tuned! Over the next few weeks, we'll be posting:

  • Daily writing tips from Canadian sci-fi and speculative fiction authors on how to keep the unreal both compelling and, well, real
  • An exclusive blog by Canadian sci-fi guru Robert J. Sawyer

  • Partnership with the wild and wonderful folks at SF Canada
  • A 12-hour Twitter writing challenge on Wednesday, October 24 with a sci-fi theme, a celebrity judge, and great prizes (more details to come!)

  • A special sci-fi-themed battle in our Literary Smackdown series with The Next Chapter with Shelagh Rogers on Monday, October 29. (Combatants: Peter Watts and Minister Faust!)
Keep your brainwaves tuned to Canada Writes through our Facebook page or Twitter feed. We'll see you on the other side!
