The Big Bang: How to Build Your Story's Universe

Ryan Copple
World-Building Consultant

Picture this: you’re sitting at your computer, wondering what you should write next, when an incredible idea strikes you. You’re going to build a fresh, new world with new rules, and it will be fresh and original. You’re so excited to begin writing, but, as you begin to outline, you realize that a lot goes into building this world out than you first thought. There’s so much to consider: what is the history and mythology of this universe, what are the rules of conduct for the characters, and how can you establish all that quickly and effectively?

We get it, we’ve been there, and that’s why we’re thrilled to have Ryan Copple help us on this journey!

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • What do we mean when we say “world building” 
  • The importance of imagination and giving yourself room to grow 
  • The facets of world building
  • Live Q&A!
