TWFest: WRITER’S CRAFT—ALEX JENNINGS

SETTING AND WORLDBUILDING—ALEX JENNINGS
We think of worldbuilding as a consideration limited to imaginary-world fantasy or science fiction stories. But world building is something we do for ourselves every day the moment we wake up, remember our present circumstances, and start our day. Alex Jennings has lived in many different places over the years, from suburban Maryland to North Africa to New Orleans, and is intimately acquainted with the feeling of culture shock. We’ll  look at what culture shock is, how it can be a valuable tool for building perspective, and rooting our stories in specific times and places.
