ENGL 36700 World-Building

This course is for anyone who ever wanted to keep living in a movie after it was over or keep breathing the weird air of a novel after turning the last page. This course will focus on the most purely imaginative side of creative work: building worlds from scratch. Physical, social, economic, spiritual, and linguistic aspects of made-up realities will be explored as you sketch out new worlds as foundations for future creative projects. Creative writing will take center-stage, but visual artists, game programmers, musicians, and any creatively inclined students are welcome.




ENGL 17000 with a C or better.
