How do writers of speculative fiction create engaging and detailed worlds?
This class will examine techniques such as developing short and sharp telling details, world building through dialogue, and accomplishing the description of deep time without overwhelming plots, themes, and characters.
Through discussion, one group and one individual exercise, and reading a short story that builds a detailed world in just a few thousand words, participants will expand their understanding of this crucial skill by engaging with one another, with published work, and with their own work practices.
