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.
As well as my writing course, I’ll also send you an invite to my personal writing group and Discord channel. With over 190 passionate writers, it’s the best place to connect with like-minded people and grow your writing skills.
You’ll also receive Richie’s worldbuilding template, a very useful device when it comes to creating a fantasy world.
