Neil Gaiman to Teach Fantasy Fiction Workshop at Bard College

18546_300226401015_131345_nStarting next spring, author Neil Gaiman will add “teacher” to his résumé.

The prolific novelist will serve as an arts professor on the Bard College faculty. According to The Wall Street Journal, Gaiman will lead an advanced writing workshop that focuses on “fantasy fiction, including its history and meaning today.”

Given Gaiman’s great popularity, it’s highly likely that the workshop will fill up quickly. For those who won’t be able to join in, we suggest you try Coursera’s “Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, Our Modern World” class.
