Crafting Fictional Worlds
Friday September 8, 2023 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm | Room: 339-342

Environment is an important element of storytelling. Comics, TV, and games use it all the time – but it’s easy to let the details of your world distract from your story. Whether it’s a science fiction/fantasy setting or a real-life location, learn how to make your world come to life without losing the reader. Join Trevor Mueller (Albert the Alien, Aw Yeah Comics ), Phillip Kennedy Johnson (The Last God, Superman, 007), Katie Cook (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Adventure Time), and Brian Michael Bendis (Jinxworld, Miles Morales, Avengers, Powers).
