World Building

Nov 7, 2020


In this generative workshop, we'll explore the real and invented literary worlds. Through a series of exercises and close readings by diverse authors, we'll discuss how to understand and communicate the rules of the worlds we write, how to frame the world's importance within the context of our stories, and how to use worlds to help drive our plots. Throughout, we'll discuss how to apply what we are generating to both nonfiction (particularly memoir) and fiction. Appropriate for fiction and nonfiction prose writers of all levels.
