From District 9 to the faction of Dauntless, literatures takes us to different worlds. In this course, students will examine dystopian universes seen in contemporary Young Adult Fiction. Through an examination of these worlds and literary elements, students will eventually create their own fictional world in their writing. Students will explore selections from novels, adaptations from film, and work with some set design tactics from the world of film and theatre. By the end of the weekend, students will have discovered and created their own dystopia.
