Do you have ideas for an imaginary world that you KNOW game players or readers will want to lose themselves within? Whether it is a fantasy world or one that is science fiction-based, creating such a believable and compelling world requires a myriad of details that will need to be defined including geographies, cultures, economies, and bestiaries, which can be overwhelming. This course will guide you through the basic process for creating worlds that you can continue to expand on even after this workshop is done.

You will learn:

  • Research techniques for inspiration and authenticity
  • How to map out your world and develop the societal elements including settlements, cultures, governments, and technologies (or MAGIC!)
  • How to design creatures that will inhabit your world
  • The process to define the historical timeline of your world to provide context  

Participants must be age 12 to 14 years old, and will need to have access to a computer as well:

  • Windows PC or Mac computer
  • Broadband internet connection
  • Display with minimum resolution of 1024 x 768. Because of the nature of this class, it is recommended to have a second monitor connected to the computer to extend the desktop. This allows the student to more easily follow what the instructor is demonstrating while concurrently being able to see the software environment that the student is working within. A good alternative to a second computer monitor is a tablet (eg. iPad, Kindle Fire, etc.) with internet access that could be used to display the instructor's screen.
  • Web camera
  • Headset with microphone
  • Three-button mouse
  • Chrome, Firefox web browser

Orientation Session:

Please note that in order to ensure that students have their home computers set up correctly for the class, and to orientate students to learning in an online environment, there will be a 30-minute scheduled orientation session that will run the week before the workshop is scheduled to start. Information about this will be sent to students by the instructor the week before the start of the workshop.


Participants must be 12 to 14 when the program starts.

This class is open to females only.
