TWS Community Workshops: World Conjuring for Fiction Writers

Sun, 16 Feb 2020 10:00 AM

Your story may foretell the future, add supernatural elements to the real world, change history, or create an entirely imagined world. No matter your fiction genre, attention to world-building ensures internal logic, enhances mood and atmosphere, and underscores theme. Learn how your story shapes its world and the world shapes the story, resulting in an immersive reading experience. Bring your writing tools.
