8 Nov, Saturday

DIY World Building
You have an idea for a story, but where do you place this story to let it flourish? What impact does the world created by the writer have on the story, and the story on the world? Participants will learn the basics of world building and come to understand the fundamentals of geography as it relates to telling a story in an engaging manner.
