We often think of worldbuilding as the domain of genre writers, but even the most contemporary literary fiction requires a writer to conjure a totally new world.

In this class we'll look at worldbuilding as a necessary element of atmosphere and narrative architecture. How do we make the world of a project feel authentic and more expansive than what the reader sees on the page? 

Julia Fine is the author of The Upstairs House, winner of the Chicago Review of Books Award for Fiction, and What Should Be Wild, which was shortlisted for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior First Novel. Her most recent novel, Maddalena and the Dark, came out with Flatiron in June 2023. She teaches writing in Chicago, where she lives with her family. 

Julia will accept manuscripts for critique. Please see the Manuscripts scroll down on our website for details.
