The SFF (Science Fiction, Fantasy, Speculative Fiction) Collective is a group that meets regularly to discuss topics relating to SFF books and share book recommendations across the genre.
For our first meeting, we will be discussing worldbuilding. What books have great worldbuilding? How do writers effectively (or not) communicate the intricate details of their imaginary worlds through paratextual elements such as footnotes and maps? Where do SFF writers take their inspiration from and who are some good writers who are moving away from Western mythology-based settings? How does world history come into it?
Series discussed in this session may include Harry Potter, A Song of Ice and Fire, Discworld, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Tales of Earthsea, A Darker Shade of Magic, Grishaverse.
Although this event is free, RSVP is essential.
