Kepler452b is a magazine of speculative fiction, written, edited and published by our students studying:
- CWR3001 - Writing Speculative Fiction
- ENL2007 - Speculative Fictions/Science Fiction, and
- PUB8001 Publishing Project.
Kepler452b will be published annually under the guidance and supervision of staff from the Creative Writing, Editing & Publishing and English Literature disciplines.
The planet Kepler452b was discovered by the Kepler telescope in July 2015. It is a super-earth, orbiting a G2 star in its habitable zone, with an orbit around its star of 385 days. It was the first near-Earth-size planet in a habitable zone ever to be discovered. Our magazine is named for this planet – our distant twin – orbiting 1400 light years away in the constellation Cygnus and home, we can imagine, to others just like, and terribly unlike, us.
