I want to create a new world with you. Who is there?
In the beginning was the idea. An idea that simply won’t let you go. It haunts your head and at some point it will prevail: It wants to be written. Maybe it is literally a new world that you are creating, but maybe it is also a story that opens our eyes to a strange world on our own doorstep.
You will find that the approach is not so different. Whether a story is fictional or real for you makes no difference to the reader. For him your story is a new, strange world. Your task is to tell it in such a way that it becomes real and tangible for the reader.
But what makes this new world exciting and alive? How and what do we have to write so that others also want to get to know this world? Where do our ideas come from and how does a fantasy idea become a fantasy story?
In my writing workshop/lecture Fremde Welten erschaffen (Creating foreign worlds) I would like to get to the bottom of this.
For my fantasy series “Nafishur” I created a completely new world and the more I dealt with it, the more extensive it became. I would like to share the experiences I made with you.
A writing lecture followed by Q&A.
