Building Fantastical Worlds

August 2, 2021 @ EST 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


Member Price: $125
SummerWrite Week 4
August 2 – 6
5 Sessions, 2.5 hours
Ages: 8 – 11
Deadline to Register: July 26, 11:59 pm
Instructor: Rylie Day

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.

NOTE: There are some materials students will need for this camp. Curbside pick-up at Writers & Books (740 University Avenue, Rochester, 14607) will be arranged the week before the camp starts. If you may be unable to pick up the materials please email summerwrite@wab.org to make other arrangements.


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. Having taught in many settings and circumstances, Rylie feels most at home in the classroom, whatever form that may take.
