How do you furnish a room, build a house, populate a village, design a city, or make a nation? Let’s start with clumsy sketches and bold, intimidating plans. In this workshop, we will draft blueprints of our fictional worlds, giving ourselves plenty of room to err. As we revise our plans and dream up our foundations, we will write characters and scenes. This workshop welcomes those who have wanted to write stories and novels but didn’t know how to begin or felt overwhelmed by the bigness of their projects. It is also ideal for those who may feel stuck and are ready to start again.
