We often write to lose ourselves in new experiences and new worlds, but as writers, how do we create worlds that feel rich, immersive and authentic?

This practical workshop will take you through the stages of world building: from how to enrich scenes, to exposition strategies for communicating your world to the reader.

You will learn

  • how to effectively generate world building ideas
  • how to build worlds organically from a starting point
  • how to enrich environments and scenes
  • techniques to make your worldbuilding feel “authentic”
  • effective exposition to best communicate your worldbuilding to the reader.
