Abstract

Since time immemorial, stories have transported readers to fantastic worlds that feel marvelously real. But as writers, creating a world for your readers to explore can feel overwhelming. In this seminar, we will study the elements of worldbuilding by close– reading examples from fiction, art, and film, and learn how parts of a world can be brought together through a character’s experience. Storytellers of all mediums are welcome.
