Worldbuilding

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.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
