Young Adult Fantasy brings together intriguing new worlds and characters ready to have wild adventures, but how do you bring all of the elements together in order to create a believable story? In this workshop, participants will world-build, create maps, myths, and voices for their characters. Building up each element, participants will learn how to structure their plot to work within the layers of a rich fantasy world.
Presented in partnership with the Regina Public Library’s month long Writes of Spring program – a celebration of readers and writers.
