Like a god, you get to invent a world. Maybe several. But how do you make these worlds that readers want to visit? How do you make them worlds that readers never want to leave? (And how can you approach worldbuilding as deeply integral to plot and character, rather than existing as an intellectual exercise separate from the story you’re telling?) In the Write Worlds Your Readers Won’t Forget workshop, explore how to create unforgettable environments, creatures, and cultures that create opportunities for plot and exert pressures on your characters.
