World Building: Outside and In
Open to all levels
In the first three weeks of this class, we will look at best practices for building exterior worlds, including place, culture, and the atmosphere that sets the mood. The next two weeks will explore the interior world of needs, wants, fears, repressed desires, and wounds that your character hides behind their persona. The goal of part two will be to explore how the ghosts of that inner world show up in the exterior world. The final week will be devoted to workshopping.
