About ‘How To Build A Fantasy World’
Worldbuilding is perhaps the defining aspect of being a fantasy writer. In order to tell our stories, we often have to create an entirely new world from scratch. And it’s a challenge. One that can go wrong at many turns.
In this writing course, we look at how to build a fantasy world, examine key questions you can ask yourself on the physical side of things, like geography, and also the culture of your world—how cities and society are organised, whether there’s any organised religion and so on.
We then go into lots of detail on how to reveal a fantasy world, which is often the biggest challenge for writers. Reveal too much and you’ll stray into the realms of the info dump, something readers hate as my research on the reasons why people stop reading books revealed.
Along the way, there’ll be plenty of advice from bestselling authors like Brandon Sanderson and JRR Tolkien.
Who Would Benefit From This Online Writing Class?
This class is ideal for anyone keen to learn more about how to build a fantasy world. You could be a beginner, or you could be someone more experienced but keen to learn new approaches.
That’s what you can find here—a unique and effective approach to worldbuilding. It combines many of the techniques used by some of the best fantasy authors, such as Brandon Sanderson and JRR Tolkien.
And you’ll also receive my worldbuilding template to help you bring order and control to the chaotic worldbuilding approach.

Nothing To Lose And Much To Gain
I’m not satisfied unless you are. That’s why you can get a full refund within the first two weeks of purchase if you’re not happy with the writing class. That means you’ve got nothing to lose in giving it a go.
And there’s potentially a lot to gain. Maybe even that missing piece of the puzzle that makes everything click for you.
At one time, I never used to go to writing classes. I tried to teach myself. But I soon realised that classes like this are shortcuts. Or my classes are anyway.
I’ve spent hundreds of hours studying writing, practising, and editing too (working professionally as a copy editor too). In this writing class, I condense all of those hours and show you the essential, need-to-know bits.
You’re skipping out all of those laborious hours I spent and getting it all in a neat 90 minutes. And what I’ve picked up may make sense to you and may help you take your writing to another level.
So like I said—nothing to lose and potentially lots to gain!
Keep Learning Beyond Online Writing Classes
Attending online writing classes is a fantastic step toward achieving your goals. But the learning doesn’t stop when the teacher signs off.
As well as practising the new things you’ve learned, it’s important to see if they’ve worked. For that, you need to get someone to cast a critical eye over your work—otherwise known as a beta reader.
Now finding such selfless people can be hard to find. But I have a quick solution—my online writing group.
With hundreds of us on Discord and Facebook, you can quickly find someone to read over your work and provide you with feedback. That way, you can put your new-found writing skills to the test and hopefully learn from the insights you get from others.
To join our writing group, just click here.
