When Jessica Drake learned that her DNA didn’t match that of her parents, she had no idea that investigating her true heritage would put her family’s lives in danger, and ultimately force her to cross into another world.
There, in an alternate Earth dominated by individuals with frightening mental powers called Gifts, Jessica learned of a curse within her blood, one so terrifying that all who possessed it were destroyed on sight. For she is a Dreamwalker, and the same dark Gift that allows her to enter the dreams of others will eventually destroy her mind and spread insanity to all around her.
This September Celia will be teaching an eight week class in speculative fiction for the Writer’s Center. It’s online, so anyone can join, and it will focus on the special skills needed to write fantasy and science fiction.
Students will get personal critiques from Celia on both short writing exercises and long term projects, as well as participating in peer critique discussions. By the end of the class each student will have written and polished a short story that is suitable for submission to a genre publication.
