Worldbuilding for all genres

Setting is more than a backdrop or stage set

Your story’s setting is far more than just backdrop or stage set. A strong sense of place can transport your reader, give your story personality and atmosphere, and build tension. Environments can even become characters in themselves, driving the plot and determining characters’ actions. In all genres, from literary realism to crime thriller to high fantasy, worldbuilding is key. This workshop focuses on bringing your literary settings to life without bogging your story down with detail.
