Future Telling: Science + Fiction Webinars

Every great leap forward starts with a burst of creativity. Someone sees the world as it is, dreams of what it could be, and then works to make the dream a reality. This is future telling, something that writers, innovators, and STEM experts do every day to imagine and create a better world.

These fun, fast-paced webinars include panel discussions and Q&As with authors and experts about hot topics in researching and writing science fiction. More information about the Future Telling: Science + Fiction Webinars can be found on the University Libraries website.
