Have you ever struggled with worldbuilding?


Do you ever worry that your worldbuilding may reflect unsavoury real-world positions or ideologies?

‚ÄčIf the answer to either of these questions is "yes," then this course is for you!

The course is for:

  • New authors who want to learn about key positions and debates in worldbuilding
  • More experienced authors who feel something isn't right or does not work in their novel
  • Authors who want to consider how they can build their worlds in a respectful and culturally sensitive way
  • Authors looking to find a worldbuilding community (all participants gain access to a Discord worldbuilding group)

The course is asynchronous with new materials released each week for four weeks.

Each week covers a little theory and has a writing task designed to help you refine these aspects of your worldbuilding.
