Event description

Description

In science-fiction and fantasy there is a fascination with constructed worlds. As a writer, it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the choices you need to make to create a compelling world. And if you are writing short fiction, the idea of doing all that work for a few thousand words can be doubly-daunting. So what parts do you have to do and what parts can you skip?

In this two-hour world-building overview we'll take a look at a bunch of different tools for creating believable worlds. Students will receive a recorded copy of the lecture, homework, and have an in-class opportunity to ask questions specific to their WIP.

Classes will be taught via Zoom

Classwork will be uploaded to a shared Google Drive folder visible only to you and your classmates. The class will be divided between lecture and exercise. The class is capped at 40 students.

Class requirements: You need an interest in writing fiction, but you do not need to have written or published anything yet. You also must be able to use Zoom on a computer. (Note: You don’t need a web camera, although they’re useful, but you do need a working microphone, the internet and some speakers so you can hear us.)

WoC Grant: For this class, I have three chairs reserved for women of color. To apply, simply fill out this web form.

FAQ

Q: What is Zoom?
A: Sort of like Skype but specifically geared for meetings. It is free to use and students will be given a login URL for the class. You will need to download the app, which works for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android. Though it does have a dial-in option, you will need to be able to see the screen for some exercises. https://zoom.us

Q: What's the accessibility like?
A: It's primarily a spoken lecture, with written exercises. Please let me know what accommodations you need.
