Beginners Class in World Building and World Conjuring 2018

About us

Overview

Writers of speculative, science fiction, magical realism or fantasy novels: this workshop will teach you the techniques of worldbuilding, the process of constructing an imaginary world.

Fiction writers must create a world grounded in the reality of their readers’ lives. But what if reality needs to take a leap? What if the world you’ve created for your book is fantastical, dystopian, far out–in other words, otherworldly?

If you are in the beginning stages of creating a speculative, science fiction, magical realism, or fantasy novel, this workshop will teach you the techniques of worldbuilding, the process of constructing an imaginary world.

Workshop leader Cori McCarthy is well versed in the challenges of the craft and will guide you to create depth in your world and characters with techniques that lend themselves to fantastical worlds: ways to establish rules and meaning, build relationships, and structure governments.

Special guest authors Amy Rose Capetta, Sage Blackwood and Kristen Simmons will help Cori immerse you in the process of building compelling and believable worlds in your fiction and help you develop new ideas for your work-in-progress.

Along with daily lectures and writing, Cori will host one-on-one consultations on the first 10 pages of your work-in-progress and facilitate writer’s roundtables on additional pages.
