I’ve built a few worlds over the years. A domain of dragons, a vertical realm where even the oceans are tipped on end, a cosmos made entirely of string. As a writer of fantasy and science fiction novels, it’s what I do.
Now, for the first time, I’m going to share some of the techniques I use to conjure up strange environments and populate them with creatures you won’t find on any Earthly safari, in my 90-minute writing workshop Worldbuilding – The Wow Factor.
Book your place now to take part in a session designed to push your creativity to the max. Learn techniques designed to spark original ideas, and find out how to sculpt your wild imaginings into a coherent whole. Discover ways in which story can drive setting. Above all, celebrate the truth that words make worlds.
Worldbuilding – The Wow Factor is part of the Other Worlds Workshop Weekend, which takes place Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September, 2019, at the UK’s Nottingham Writers’ Studio. Organised by writing tutor and University lecturer Alex Davis, this two-day event is perfect for genre authors looking for inspiration and advice about their work. Other guest speakers include horror author Charlotte Baker, science fiction novelist Andrew Bannister, and thriller writer Sophie Draper.
