Workshop

The Devil's in the Detail: Worldbuilding in Prose

With: 
J.L. Scott

Setting plays an important role in prose work, whether it's in a whole-world build in a high fantasy, a re-build in historical fiction, or a real-world touch in memoir. Readers become invested through sensory detail and singular details that stand-in for whole systems. In this workshop, you will study some of the masters of world building, such as Garth Nix and Phillipa Gregory, and then practice applying detail-oriented world building through targeted prompts and exercises.
