No matter your genre, creating a world that draws readers in is essential to effective storytelling. In this interactive session, writers will explore key aspects of world-building and scene-setting, reflecting on how sensory details, language, dialogue and history (real or imagined) help authors create their own unique worlds. Through excerpts of published novels from Attica Locke, Jeanne DuPrau, and Blake Crouch, as well as short writing exercises, writers at any level will develop their skills to create authentic and imaginative worlds of their own.
