WORLDBUILDING WEEK: Day One – Languages

Worldbuilting Week

Welcome to the first annual Worldbuilding Week at QSF. We’ll talk about all aspects of building a world for your story, including languages; alien/magical races; history and timelines; culture and politics; sex, marriage and reproduction; and tools and techniques. It should be a lot of fun.

Today we’re talking about languages, and Erica Pike will be our moderator. Have you ever created a language for a story? How do you go about building the fundamentals? Are there tools online to help? Does your language offer clues to your culture? And how do you make it work for your readers?

Join the discussion.

Here’s the schedule for the week – each day will have a moderator to help keep moving things along and to supply their own tips and point of view.

Tues 9/15: Languages, Moderator: Erica Pike

Wed 9/16: Alien/Magical Races, Moderator: Jana Denardo

Thurs 9/17 History/Timelines, Moderator: Kathryn Grace Duncan Bone

Fri 9/18: Culture & Politics, Moderator: Kathryn Grace Duncan Bone

Sat 9/19: Sex, Marriage, Reproduction, Moderator: Elizabeth Barrette

Sun 9/20: Tools and Techniques, Moderator: Rory Ni Coileain

It’s a freeform discussion – pop in and ask your questions or share your wisdom – or both!
