Building Fantastical Worlds


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/06/2021
Have you ever wondered what it’s like living in a magical world, like that of Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, or The Borrowers? How do we leave everyday routines and leap into fantastical realms? Better yet, how do we create our own? Come explore surprising worlds of all shapes and sizes and learn new perspectives from which to construct original, in-depth worlds in your creative writing.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like living in a magical world, like that of Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, or The Borrowers? How do we leave everyday routines and leap into fantastical realms? Better yet, how do we create our own? Come explore surprising worlds of all shapes and sizes and learn new perspectives from which to construct original, in-depth worlds in your creative writing. Building blocks for fictional worlds can include maps, “rules,” characters, illustrations, and the beginnings of stories. We’ll share our creations with family and friends on Friday.

 

Rylie Day is a writer, tutor/teacher, mother, and lover of Shakespeare who enjoys writing fiction and creative nonfiction. She graduated magna cum laude from Nazareth College in 2013 with a degree in English Literature. Before teaching at Writers & Books, she took classes as a teen and young adult.
