WORKSHOP: World-Building with Moiya McTier

This event is a reservation-only Zoom workshop.

Astrophysicist and folklorist Moiya McTier is an expert on the visionary process of "worldbuilding," or creating a comprehensive fictional world. Anything that requires an imagined reality -- from novels to games to TV shows -- benefits from a fully fleshed out universe in which audiences can lose themselves. Moiya practices fact-based world building, combining her scientific background with her creative force. This talk will kick-start your creative flow, helping you tap into Moiya’s process by establishing connections between the knowledge you already have and the fantastic world you want to create.
