The seventh SF Criticism Masterclass will be held in Liverpool in conjunction with (and following on directly after) the Swords, Sorcery, Sandals and Space: The Fantastika and the Classical World. A Science Fiction Foundation Conference.
The lineup of tutors for the Masterclass is different every year: this is your only chance to spend three immersive days studying sf criticism with Nick Lowe, Graham Sleight, and Cat Valente! I encourage all of you to seriously consider applying for this year’s class.
