World Building in Science Fiction and Fantasy: How to create authentic and original worlds and characters.
While science fiction and fantasy has, in recent years, gone mainstream, many creators are heavily influenced by works of popular culture, which in turn are largely based on Western (European) mythologies, and so we see dragons and Thor’s hammer popping up in a story set in an African community. While this is not inconceivable in today’s global village, this class will help you create works grounded in your culture and history, and which readers will find new, original, and fresh.
The class will be divided into two sections, one dedicated to creating characters and another to creating the world in which the characters live, and will include writing exercises.
