World building is an art that sets fantasy, science fiction and historical fiction writers apart from all other genres. We long to create a world of wonder that will enchant and enthrall our readers, but how do we make these worlds believable, and how do we keep from drowning in the details? Explore the key elements of world building and gain tips for making these elements real in your writing. Learn a unique method to determine which elements will best enhance your story and showcase your characters. This interactive class starts with practical examples from Tolkien, Avatar, Shogun, and the author's own works and then has a 'lab' portion where the participants use a unique method to determine which world building elements are most important to their own books.
