Writing a story is one thing, but creating a world with its own creatures, rules, mythos? How does a writer create that imagined world? What are its necessary elements? How do you introduce an audience to your created world? What details could you leave out? And, more importantly, how do you build a story within that world?
How to Write Sci-Fi/Fantasy is a crash course that will tackle those questions and more. By the end of the session, you'd be able to build your own sci-fi or fantasy story that's not just about dragons, vampires, dark forests or magic, but about letting humanity take center stage.
Minimum age for this workshop: 8 years oldOnline class duration: 7 days
How to Write Sci-Fi/Fantasy is taught by Filipino playwright and author, Dr. Joem Antonio. He has a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from UP Diliman and is an eight-time Palanca Award winner. He is currently the Director of the MA Humanities Program at the University of Asia and the Pacific.
We conduct our online classes using Google Classroom, Drive, Calendar, and Meet. All coursework (text lectures and writing exercises) are available at the start of class and are meant to be accomplished at the student's own pace within the class duration. The class includes one call with a personal writing coach and a Q&A video chat with Dr. Joem, but availing of these is optional. Those who submit all required writing exercises by the deadline will receive a digital certificate. Students aged 8-12 are required to have a parent or guardian to assist going through coursework.
