Creating Magic Systems
Love reading about magic? Learn how to write about it in this interactive workshop. We’ll discover together what makes up a complete magic system including some standard elements. We’ll also discuss magic systems in literature that we admire. Students will then have the opportunity to create a set of rules for their own magic system, and practice writing in this newly created world in a way that will keep readers guessing what’s coming next.
