Masterclass with Helen Lowe:
Establishing ambiance and milieu is part of all fiction, but the art of creating worlds that are other to what we know is integral to Fantasy literature — and mastering it is essential to the “craft” of those writing in this genre. In this session, award-winning fantasy author, Helen Lowe, will examine the building blocks for “fantastic” world-building, including how to “make it real” for readers. If you’re keen to explore the territory of JK Rowling and George RR Martin, Neil Gaiman and Ursula Le Guin, this is the session for you. At least one hands-on exercise will be included, with more depending on time and numbers.
