MetroWest Writers’ Guild: Fantasy Worldbuilding

Online

So you’re writing a fantasy, but you want to break out of the typical swords and sorcery scenery? This is the class for you! 

Why do so many fantasy novels take place in the same, medieval, pseudo-European setting? How can writers create unique, fully-realized environments that readers will want to get lost in? Dive into techniques for architecting your own world and learn how elements such as geography, technology, economics, weather, government, culture and more are all integral to crafting a tale designed to delight. Expect to leave the seminar with the building blocks of your own fantasy world as well as a plan for fleshing out your creation while not getting lost in the details.
