Future fictions with teens

Level 3, Main entry, Swanston St

Attend a free workshop just for teens with international author and blogger Cory Doctorow. 

Hear about the future of fiction, learn how to be an active participant in today’s world and unleash your creativity as you discover others who are helping to shape our world.

Cory is the co-editor of Boing Boing and the author of young adult novels like Homeland, Pirate cinema and Little brother, and novels for adults like Rapture of the nerds and Makers. He is the former European director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and co-founded the UK Open Rights Group. Born in Toronto, Canada, he now lives in London.

This unique event is presented by the Centre for Youth Literature as part of the Library's Digital Society series, exploring the interface of digital and analogue worlds and their impact on human experience and innovation.
