All Levels | Though we often associate worldbuilding with fantasy, every story is a series of nesting dolls with worlds inside of them: countries, cities, neighborhoods, friend groups, and internal frameworks. Students will learn how to create and populate worlds on the page. We will conduct group exercises and discuss excerpts from work by China Miéville, Eleanor Catton, Margaret Atwood, Daniel Handler, and Donna Tartt. This is a genre-agnostic class, so expect to come away with paradigms you can apply to any story.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
