Event description
This class offers a deep dive into key aspects of building inclusive worlds with eight outstanding builders of speculative worlds.

About this Event

Worldbuilding for speculative fiction or SSFnal games can be a daunting task; even moreso for writers who want to create or explore inclusive cultures filled with diverse characters but without unconsciously replicating colonialist structures and viewpoints. This class offers writers a deep dive into key aspects of building inclusive worlds -- Creating Cultures, Ideology, Religion, Cosmology, Sociobiology, Research, and more -- with a plethora of outstanding builders of speculative worlds: Steven Barnes, P. Djèlí Clark, Jaymee Goh, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Nilah Magruder, Pam Punzalan, Rebecca Roanhorse, and Nisi Shawl.

This four week class includes video lectures and interviews plus extensive discussion and Q&A on each topic. Students will leave the class with a deep worldbuilding toolset and resources for further study.

When: October 2 - November 1, 2020

Where: Online — Available everywhere and at your own pace

Price: $500 - Full and Partial Scholarships available
