The process of world-building can go on forever. However, using character as your defining touchpoint in world creation can help to tame your creative impulses and focus them in a way that will make your world feel like a living landscape.

In this course, we’ll discuss how to think about your world-building in a way that will keep it internally consistent. Moreover, you’ll learn strategies to filter your world-building through character and the cause and effect of interaction between the people that live in your world.

Together, we can create worlds that readers won’t want to leave.

Syllabus: This is a four week course that will meet twice per week with discussion and exercises. We will cover the following topics:
  • The difference between elements within and without your world
  • Using causal ripples to move between character creation and world-building
  • Critical questions for creating belief systems and intergroup conflict
  • World-building within contemporary settings
  • Layering details about your world into your manuscript
