Mini-Masterclasses at Mancunicon

Every Summer the Science Fiction Foundation holds a Masterclass in Science Fiction Criticism with world-renowned critics, academics and authors. 

As a taster, the SFF will be running two mini-Masterclasses at Mancunicon, the 2016 Eastercon. At 19.00 on Sunday in Room 10, author Kari Sperring will lead a discussion of Liz Williams, "The Banquet of the Lords of Light". At 11.30 on Monday in Room 10, academic Andrew M. Butler will lead a discussion of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, "If I were a man".

Each session will last one hour. Places are limited to ten for each session. Please sign up at Ops. (You may only attend these workshops if you are a member of Mancunicon. Memberships for Mancunicon are now closed.)

The stories can both be found online:
