Proposed Workshop Title WORLD BUILDING FOR WRITERS, OR WHY EVERYONE IN THE GALAXY SHOULDN’T SPEAK ENGLISH
Workshop Category Craft Building,
World Setting,
Workshop Duration 4 weeks
Workshop Details Commercial fiction today has become more texturally-rich with the melding and combing of genres, from romantic suspense to urban fantasy to science fiction romance… and beyond. Yet too often, writers ignore the depths available and present the reader only with shades of well-known, present day locales with a magician, vampire or rocket ship added. Or else writers go to such depths that the novel ceases to be enjoyable fiction and instead becomes a dry, intergalactic travelogue or magical species encyclopedic entry. Multi-award-winning science fiction and fantasy romance author Linnea Sinclair’s workshop will teach you how to get the most out of your multi-genre novel and explore the importance of world building. You’ll learn how to use your ‘strangeness budget’; how to create customs, religions, histories, politics and languages; how to maintain reader interest in things known and unknown and have fun at the same time.
