WLT hosts Third Thursday each month, featuring discussions focusing on specific topics of interest to writers and readers, bringing together distinguished panelists for conversations moderated by a WLT staff member.

In fiction, anything is possible. As writers, we can create entirely new worlds straight from our imagination, we can travel back in time to worlds we can no longer touch, we can shift the reality we know, or speculate about what our future looks like. The possibilities are endless. 

But whether you’re writing a science fiction novel or a historical fiction novel or a novel set in the near-future, worldbuilding is a skill all writers need to hone. What does it take to build a world on the page? How do we craft a world that readers will believe? And maybe more importantly, how do we craft worlds that readers want to spend time in? Join us as we discuss these questions and more with Afia Atakora, Fernando A. Flores, and Marshall Ryan Maresca for our February Third Thursday on “Worldbuilding in Fiction.”
