Workshop on Worldbuilding
March 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
There are rules to every world, and they interconnect as intricately as a web. An author has to know how these threads knot together in order to help a reader build a bridge from their reality to the book’s. In Erica Cameron’s presentation, we will discuss what worldbuilding is and how to form a world around one key point–concept, setting, character, or other element. In addition to the deep worldbuilding of speculative fiction, we will also discuss the ways in which the rules of worldbuilding apply to realistic fiction of all subgenres. Additionally, we will touch on how maps can be used in the development of a fantasy world.
This event is free for SCBWI members and only $10 for non-members.
