Creative Writing Workshop with Marilyn Kleiber

October 5, 2019, 10:00am - 2:00pm | Orangeville Public Library | Library

Join creative writing instructor Marilyn Kleiber for a full day workshop. Building Worlds: Make your Stories Possess Life and Entertain your Readers!

Every tale, whether a short story, a novella, or a full-blown novel takes place in a world. Whether that world is the one we live in, or a science fiction, fantasy or historical world, it is important to know how to present that world to your readers.

Remember, all fiction is speculative, and it is valuable to understand the process and fundamentals of realistic world-building, including how and when to combine imagined with real setting details for best effect.

Creating fictional properties can sometimes seem like an overwhelming task, but this course will show you how much fun it is.

Do you begin from the small village or city and work your way out, or do you think of the grand schemes of the universe that govern your world and work your way all the way down to the very house in which your characters live? Learn tips on making your worlds make sense.

Pre-registration required. Please register for each creative writing workshop separately. The October 5 registration form is below.
