Ever wanted to rule the world? Well, now it's your chance! When writing your own story, you get to create a whole new world. This workshop is to help you with that process. You want to make the most believable world you can no matter what genre you are writing in. Whether we're in the real world or in outer space, there needs to be rules and consistency for your world. We will be going through five main genres and world building exercises: Reality, Reality Lite, Period Pieces, Science Fiction, and Fantasy. Soon you will have created a world of your very own!

Hi! I'm Julia and I just graduated in May 2020 from SUNY Purchase where I studied filmmaking. I have been a teacher for about 4 years. I have taught both preschool and high school students. While teaching at Gooroo, my areas of teaching fluctuate between middle to high school level film courses and preschool to elementary crafts and educational activities. I enjoy helping students unlock their full potential in order to pursue their passions! My philosophy is to do what you love, take risks, and don’t be afraid of making mistakes (that’s normally when the best lessons are learned!).
