creative writing assignment

Much of this unit focused on the potential issues that an over-reliance on technology can create.  You have two options to choose from (Narrative or Analysis). Read through the two options and choose one to complete.


In this creative writing assignment, you have the chance to produce what is called speculative fiction. Speculative fiction is one way of imagining new worlds. It also has a deep history in the creation of alternative Black futures, perhaps most recognizably through the film Black Panther and the work of Octavia Butler. Here’s Margaret Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale, among other novels, describing Speculative Fiction. Watch the clip and read the text to get her perspective.

Take a look at the article, Creative Writing Prompts for Sci-Fi & Fantasy Lovers, to get a brief sense of speculative fiction. There are also a number of prompts available at this link. Choose one of the prompts, or just start writing on your own if you want, as a means to jump-start a narrative account of issues related to learning, design, and technology in this alternative world. Oftentimes, speculative fiction imagines futures (or re-envisions the present day) that feel dystopian or utopian. One critical part of this assignment is that you demonstrate an understanding of one of these three areas–learning, design, and technology–and the ways in which they shape the world you are imagining. Please be explicit about the area on which you are focusing (i.e. title your paper: “Speculative Fiction: Learning” or “Speculative Fiction: Design”, etc.)

In this assignment, you will use the 2021 EDUCAUSE Horizon Report, particularly its focus on “Technological Trends,” as inspiration to make predictions about the learning technologies that will shape the future. This analysis, then, will demand that you:

-Choose three technologies (they can be from the Horizon Report, but do not have to be) that you think will shape the future of learning.

-Research those technologies, gathering legitimate sources beyond the Horizon report (news articles, popular press pieces, etc.) Check here to get a sense of possible popular press outlets to search as well as where they land on the spectrum of political bias. This is just a starting point; not all of your sources will necessarily come from here. While there is not a set number of sources you must use, we imagine that your discussion on each technology will weave in more than one source in order to bolster your prediction.

-Make your predictions based on your research.

-Note: While you use research to guide your analysis, much of this can be written in your own words. However, please list the references that influence your thinking at the end of your paper.

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file. If there are any issues you want to change, you can apply for a free revision and the writer will amend the paper according to your instructions. If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
  • Where do I upload files?

    When you submit your first order, you get a personal account where you can track all your orders, their statuses, your payments, and discounts. Among other options, you will have a possibility to communicate with your writer via a special messenger. You will be able to upload all information and additional materials on your paper using the “Files” tab on your personal page. Please consider uploading everything you find necessary for our writer to perform at the highest standard.
