Fantasy worlds thrive on magic systems but creating them can be overwhelming. What's the best approach? How can you create something that works on the page? How does magic impact character building? In this workshop, we will take a deep dive into existing magic systems in books and films to help you figure out how to create your own complex and believable magical world. We will do some writing, so come prepared!
