Worldbuilding: Unfolding New Realities

  • Friday, August 27, 2021
  • 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Virtual Program

Guided by local author and teacher Tara Campbell

Sam Gilliam put forth a new reality when he took his canvases off stretchers to create his famous draped works of art. Similarly, we'll imagine new worlds as writers, taking inspiration from Gilliam's Relative (1968). Worldbuilding is a vital component of all genres of writing, from historical fiction to contemporary realism to fantastical stories of the future, so everyone is welcome to come build their own new worlds.

Materials: A writing program or your preferred writing implements.
