Speculative Erotica – Week 4 – Alternate History

What if?

It’s a question many of us have asked regarding many stories. What if *x* had or hadn’t happened? What would have happened if this? If that?

For some authors, they capture this ‘what if?’ in their stories. This form? Alternate History.

Authors such as Margaret Atwood and Philip K Dick have embodied alternate history in their books, with classic titles such as The Handmaid’s Tale and The Man in the High Castle. However, how can incorporate erotica into Alternate History?

In this class, we’ll be looking at:
– Alternate History basics and classic titles.
– Exploring ‘what if?’ in writing & history
– Use world-building techniques to aid your craft
– Exploring alternate history affects depictions of sex
– How sex throughout history can serve as inspiration.

Class will be held on Thurs 10th September at 10PM BST/5PM EDT, running approx. 45 minutes, with time to hang out afterwards if you have any questions or just want to chat.

Class is free of charge, with the option to contribute to my Ko-Fi page, which aids the continuation of my writing, hosting classes and update my blog over the long term, is much appreciated.

Registration is working properly right now (gahhh tenchology!) so if you would like to attend, email me at vmariegrey(at)gmail(dot)com and I’ll send you the invite link 🙂

Thanks very much and see you there! 🙂

To them and whomever else who has so far supported me on this page, thank you so much. It really does mean a lot as I work to build an income and career in light of losing my primary income due to COVID19. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you ❤
