Compelling setting is a crucial ingredient for speculative and genre fiction. Beloved authors often invite readers to dwell in fantastic worlds, if only until the last pages. We will discuss stellar examples, examine approaches to world creation, and play with techniques for helping the imagination fill in the details. From physical world to social structure to magical elements, students are invited to create and present a world that inspires stories.
