Worldbuilding

In fiction, setting can be as an important a character as the people. And in speculative fiction, that character often needs to be built from the ground–and history, and culture, and physics–up. In this workshop, weâ’ll be tackling worldbuilding. What issues arise when you set a story in a world that’s not our own? How can we build worlds as complex and lived in as the real one? How can we avoid creating the same fantastical world that’s been done a thousand times before? We’ll attempt to answer these questions and more through discussion and writing exercises, and with any luck, you’ll leave the workshop with the seeds of a brand new world.
