November 2019​
Online class with

This class goes through the ins and outs of making an interesting and effective magic system that fits with the story you’re trying to tell. Are you making a hard or soft system, what are the limitations and costs, how does your system affect your character and world? While there are no hard and fast “rules” for how to write a magic system, this class offers guidelines and questions to consider to make sure your system makes sense, is consistent, and understandable.
