Writing Fantasy–TPS Workshop
October 16, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT
The fantasy genre imagines other worlds as settings for the story, worlds where myths and legends are real, magic rules, and wondrous creatures leap off the page. With the monumental success on the page and screen of properties like Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, interest in the genre is at an all-time high. But where do you begin when the only limits imposed are those of your imagination? How do you approach building an entirely new world and not let all the possibilities and minutiae overwhelm you and prevent you from telling a compelling tale? Attendees will learn tips of the trade from award-winning fantasy author L. Penelope.
L. Penelope is the award-winning author of the Earthsinger Chronicles. The first book in the series, Song of Blood & Stone, was chosen as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Best Fantasy Books of All Time. Equally left and right-brained, she studied filmmaking and computer science in college and sometimes dreams in HTML. She hosts the ‘My Imaginary Friends’ podcast and lives in Maryland with her husband and furry dependents.
