World Building Using Material Culture and Social Space
Sunday 11 July, 4-6 pm
A great way to create a vivid world for a story is to find and use the “right” details. How do I figure out details that are memorable and specific instead of generic and bland?
This workshop gives practical advice on how to use “material culture” and “social space” as a foundation for setting. What relationships do characters have with the “stuff” in their world? What are the rules and expectations in how characters interact with other people and with the places they move through and live in? These are great building blocks for awesome worlds.
