June 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$15 – $20
Every fiction author invites readers into an imagined world, whether it’s a small town, a futuristic earth, or a faraway planet. But an author must build trust, for a reader to believe. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll look at techniques that create believable worlds, with focus on critical details and how best to present them so readers will confidently follow you – no matter where you take them.
Author and editor Katherine Prairie brings her own experience as an international geologist to the Alex Graham thriller series.
