Fantasy, science fiction, and other “unrealisms” are vital to our survival—especially when such stories are also silly, escapist, and strange. Will Alexander—National Book Award winner and author of unrealist fiction for young audiences—describes the whimsical importance and imaginative necessity of narrative weirdness.

Will Alexander is a National Book Award winner and the faculty chair of the Vermont College of Fine Arts program in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
