There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges

Spend four days in the beautiful studios at Windy Knoll Farm and take inspiration from the natural surroundings in this workshop for writers and artists. Explore the steps to develop an imaginary setting in a process known as “Worldbuilding.” How do we bring to life a unique place that exists only in our mind’s eye? Go deeper and learn to weave history, ecology, and geography together to create a rich backstory for fiction and artwork. We will represent key elements of our worlds in words and images. Writers, gamers and illustrators – come share your vision and find pathways to more vibrant creativity! Worldbuilding classes may be taken multiple times. Each writer’s creative journey may develop at their own pace. For ages 13-18.
