This live Workshop event is available for members with full, extended, or time traveler admission levels.
“All things great are bound up in all things small.” Worldbuilding—whether for fantasy, sci fi, or historical fiction—should directly influence who your character is and what they struggle with. We’re all shaped by our culture, our society, our hometown. Whether your character is the ruler of a kingdom or an everyday child with a mountain to climb, you can use the concept of intersectionality to explore the different aspects of your fictional world, and how your characters fit into them.
Carolyn Tara O’Neil grew up in a tiny New York City apartment filled with thousands of books. Every Friday she went to the public library for even more reading material. She now lives in a slightly smaller NYC apartment with slightly fewer books, and still goes to the library every week.
In between then and now, Carolyn has lived in France, Spain, and Japan. She is happiest when in the woods or chatting with friends over tea, and is always eager to discuss TV, books, politics, and how we can work together to build a more equal society. Her debut novel, Daughters of a Dead Empire, is set during the Russian Revolution and will be published in Fall 2021 by Roaring Brook Press (Macmillan).
Events can only be accessed on the date and time they become available. Workshop Events may include breakout sessions, so be sure to have a notebook at the ready.
This event will remain accessible until March 1st for members with General and Full Admission, and March 22nd for members with Extended and Time Traveler Admission.
