The writer's task is to work from the pallet of reality, but also to reshape reality using imagination. In that sense, writers are constantly speculating. When our fiction takes a cue from the realm of fantasy, futurism, or the supernatural, it becomes categorically "speculative."

How can we use careful speculation to aim for truth, beauty, and emotional resonance? Let’s find out together.
