The New Orleans Sci-fi Generator Writer’s Salon is a community event where participants are able to do collective writing inspired by visionary fiction. Inspired by the Detroit Sci-Fi Generator, participants work together to identify local issues that need speculative fiction visioning, and then creatively come up with a world in which to explore the issues. It’s a process adrienne maree brown calls collaborative ideation – creating a future that isn’t seeded from one mind, but woven together from lots of minds and hearts and bodies.
