Begin creating a dystopian world in this workshop about futures that might be and histories that could have been…

From Orwell’s 1984 to the YA bestseller The Hunger Games, the appetite for dystopian fiction remains insatiable. In this workshop, we’ll be looking at futuristic world-building, re imagining history and creating characters and conflict that will leave you with a plot outline you can turn into a novel.

Inspired by the #Vote100 events celebrating the centenary of women’s right to vote, we’ll be exploring building a world where this event didn’t come to pass as a stimulus for new material.
