Worldbuilding

In this workshop, we’re building new worlds, brick by brick. You’ll be the mastermind of your imagined world’s past, present and future, setting up the foundation of your story. Since this fantastical new landscape will play a major role in your storyline, we’ll start by drawing detailed maps, giving it features like water, mountains, borders and weather. Then we’ll go even further, using Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky as our inspiration. You’ll invent inhabitants for your world, giving them robust backstories through letter-writing, journals and social media. Maybe you’ll put robots in charge, or create a secret language only spoken in your world! You are the keeper of this world, and what you say goes - all you have to do is register! *Please note this workshop meets on Zoom.
