      I'll Build Me a World

      Building a fictional world that stretches across works is its own particular challenge. In addition to paying attention to the usual narrative elements (plot, character, sentences, etc.) the writer of this kind of work must pay close attention to the shape and feel of an additional element: a world that must be both strange and recognizable. In this course, students will examine recurring characters, locations, and objects, as well as setting as "character." Throughout the semester, students will study works by authors who have created fictional worlds and ideas that bridge across novels and stories. In addition, students will practice creating their own fictional worlds About the Instructor: Rion Amilcar Scott is the author of the story collection, The World Doesn't Require You (Norton/Liveright, August 2019). His debut story collection, Insurrections (University Press of Kentucky, 2016), was awarded the 2017 PEN/Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction and the 2017 Hillsdale Award from the Fellowship of Southern Writers. His work has been published  in journals such as The Kenyon Review, Crab Orchard Review, and The Rumpus, among others. This workshop is free thanks to a partnership with the Pratt Library.
