In this workshop from award-winning Sci-Fi and Fantasy Claire Buss, you’ll look at the rules of magic and how you can use them to build your own magic system.
When writing about magic, unfortunately, it’s not all about waving a wand and going abracadabra. There have to be rules and consequences otherwise your magical system won’t be believable. An interesting and innovative magic system is a huge world-building block when writing fantasy and adds so much to your story, your characters and their journey.
