About the Event

By this point, we’ve created a universe for our stories to take place in, but Rome wasn’t built in a day! At this meeting, we will continue to build upon our world and hone-in on the cities, systems, and cultures that we have created. Expect this meeting to be much more specific than the last.

At the end of this meeting, we will have developed a region of our world with depth, an agreed-upon system for how the world works, and a general knowledge of its history. We’re one step closer to being ready to start writing!

About Dal Writes

Alex Sproul, Organizer

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!
