Description

In this two-part course on worldbuilding, writers will explore the skill sets required to create vivid, immersive, and wholly original atmospheres and settings in genre and literary fiction. We will study the worlds built by writers as wide ranging as science fiction writer Octavia Butler to short story master Alice Munro and together create a knowledge base for how to incorporate these techniques into our own existing or future projects. Through guided study and writing exercises, writers will develop a strong understanding of how to develop a fictive dimension unlike any other. This class meets on two Thursdays, January 27 and February 3, 2022, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
