This master workshop covers techniques authors use to build believable worlds. We’ll look at openings that draw readers into your world, explore story sources, discuss ideas and approaches, and spark your imagination with dynamic writing games. Part one covers terrain, weather, ecosystems, and life forms. Part two will zero in on the process of building interesting societies with unique social, political, religious, and economic systems. World Building is a demanding process, but doable when you set the foundation and create from the story’s dramatic structure. Ask the right questions, research, make connections, and all the elements from natural setting to social structures combine to create the inevitable conflicts and tensions each novel demands. Bring writing materials.
