Today’s episode is actually an author panel with 8 authors discussing worldbuilding events. These are run by J Thorn and Zach Bohannon where a small group of authors gather to create a world in which they each write a story. A shared world.
Time is spent not only discussing the rules of the world (and each event is a different theme), but also some learning. We have spent time writing character archetypes, story rubric, and working on the 3 C story method.
Afterwards, each author is free to write a story in any genre using the world that everyone created. Past themes have been Rockapoc (at the Rock n Roll hall of fame), sci-fi Seattle, authors on a train (actually spending the time traveling on a train while writing), Witches of Salem, and Vampires of New Orleans.
The locations were chosen to help build the atmosphere and give everyone a great destination to hang out. Below are the authors and links to their sites, books and podcasts.The Hosts and Worldbuilding Event Page https://thecareerauthor.com/events/ https://thecareerauthor.com/the-career-author-podcast-episode-38-story-world-building/
