Tuesday, April 3, 2018 from 6:30-7:30PM Writer’s Roundtable discussion group – Coffee Press, Paseo Verde Library (free for WSN Members and first time guests / $5 non-members). This month’s topic:
“Dreaming of Elsewhere and Otherwise: The Art of World-Building in Fiction and, Yes, Even Nonfiction.” Bring your favorite examples of world-building, the art of creating finely-tuned detailed environments that inform, contain and motivate the arc of your story and the actions of your characters. World-Building is almost exclusively invoked in discussions of fiction, and most often fantasy. But how might the notion be useful for writers of nonfiction as they cobble together the contexts and sensory textures of distant lands and times? Feel free to bring brief excerpts from your own work as well. Free for WSN members, $5 for guests. We look forward to seeing you at the Coffee Press inside the Paseo Verde Library!
