Creating Imaginary Worlds
Join us for an interactive workshop with special guest, astrophysicist and folklorist Dr. Moiya McTier. Dr. Moiya will take you through the steps of creating a science fiction or fantasy world from your imagination. By the end of the workshop, you will have the beginnings of a fictional world. What stories will you tell in this world?
