Readers come to fiction for escape, and they love diving into alien world which are far more fantastic and titanic than our own. New York Times Bestselling author Michael A. Stackpole will walk you through the key elements of making sure your world has the depth readers crave. He cover the basics from geography and history—the stuff you missed skipping class in Middle School—and then show you how to work religion, culture, non-human races, magick and technology into a cohesive whole which will allow your readers to get lost in the worlds of your making.

Michael A. Stackpole and Timothy Zahn will conduct a series of nine (9) seminars throughout the weekend. Cost at the door will be $10 per session. (Cash only!)
