Event description

Description

Worldbuilding for speculative fiction can be a daunting task, even moreso for authors who want to create inclusive cultures that don’t unconsciously replicate colonialist structures and viewpoints filled with diverse characters that aren’t stereotypes or caricatures. This class offers writers a deep dive into key aspects of building inclusive worlds — Creating Cultures, Ideology, Religion, Cosmology, Sociobiology, Research, and more — with eight outstanding builders of speculative worlds: Max Gladstone, Kate Elliott, Nisi Shawl, Andrea Hairston, Tananarive Due, Jaymee Goh, Lauren Jankowski, and Steven Barnes.

This four week class includes video lectures and interviews by the instructors and extensive discussion and Q&A on each topic. Students will leave the class with a deep worldbuilding toolset, resources for further study, and access to a database of sensitivity readers.

When: November 1 - 30, 2019
Where: Online — Available everywhere and at your own pace
Price: $500
