New Worlds [Vanessa Veselka]
Whether we are writing memoirs or fiction, whether “literary” or dystopic, we are all trying to tell a good story and have to make the world our characters inhabit believable. Yet sometimes a magic fish is more plausible than a banker counting money. Why? What is it that makes a world feel real? In this workshop we will work with how we set up the rules of our worlds and keep the contract with the reader. After all, magic fish are not a problem in a place where they spawn naturally. Participants should come ready to work. All genres and mediums welcome!
