Constructing the World: Internal and External World Building

Monday, December 07, 20158:30 PM – 9:30 PM (Eastern Time) 

In this 75-minute webinar, children’s editorial and publishing expert Emma D. Dryden will discuss facets of worldbuilding as we think about our stories. She will explore the idea that the world of a story is not just description of place, but is the main character’s interaction with it. She’ll look at the ways in which a keenly realized make-up of an exterior world can become an integral part of the make-up of the internal world of our characters. The webinar includes a PDF handout and writing exercises to be completed as time allows.

Emma D. Dryden is the founder of drydenbks, a premier children’s editorial and publishing consultancy that she started after 25 years as a children’s book editor and publisher. She has edited over 1,000 books. Books published under her guidance have won the Newbery Medal, Newbery Honor and Caldecott Honor, and have hit The New York Times and USA Today best-seller lists among others.

Total Cost: $24.99

Program will start promptly at 8:30 and go until 9:45pm Eastern. Please plan to join 5 minutes early to allow time to join. This webinar is hosted by Inked Voices. Questions? Contact
