Let's Play God, But In A Fun Way (Or Worldbuilding 101) with Martin Cahill

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Worldbuilding can be intimidating for newer writers of science fiction fantasy; there can feel like there's so much to work out in any given story, that the actual story can take a backseat to the mechanics of government, magic, history, currency, more! This hour workshop will be dedicated to breaking down the myths of successful worldbuilding, learning how to refocus your creative energy, so that the world the story can share the spotlight equally. We're playing god, will learn how to think of worldbuilding as a tool for good storytelling in short fiction novels, not a separate aspect to worry about.

Separate paid registration may be required.
