Three folks from Worldbuilding Magazine delves deeply into how to build and communicate your world to the audience. Each of the six 90-minute sessions will combine short lectures, panel discussions, prompts or exercises, and Q&A. We will also invite students to share their work for feedback and critique. Planned topics include inspiration, scope & scale, consistency & immersion, collaboration & feedback, context, format, tropes, process, tools, and research. We’ll also discuss typical problems and issues people run into when worldbuilding and provide tactics to handle them.

Max 30 students. $10 per session/$60 total; but if this would cause you a financial hardship please let us know. Though the sessions will be recorded we highly recommend attending so as to maximize the information being shared.
