Dal Writes Worldbuilding: Revision and Character Development

Friday, March 8th @ 5:00 pm7:00 pm

Free

About the Event:

Our world is built, tested, and broken. Great! We will break this session into two components. First, we will come up with solutions for any problems we discovered with how our world works from last week. Second, we will begin to create the characters who live in our world. These won’t necessarily be the characters whose stories we tell. Instead these might be important families living in cities, famous tyrants ruling a kingdom, or heroes who have completed fantastical deeds. This is the final step before we will actually write our anthology.

About Dal Writes:

Dal Writes is a society for creative writers that focuses on elements of science fiction and fantasy. Our emphasis is on worldbuilding techniques: the strategies and methods of creating a universe that isn’t our own. We believe that storytelling is a skill that anybody can develop – and it is a skill that is central to many professions outside of creative writing. Game development and digital animation are just two examples of professions that require great storytelling. Join us this term to help create an anthology of short stories that all take place in one universe. We’re tackling the writing process from start to finish – including our very own book launch!
