Shared Worlds is a two-week residential camp based on a “shared world” theme. A shared world is a growing trend in fiction that centers around a complete, fictional world designed by a group. During Wofford’s Shared World program, students will design fantasy worlds with other young, creative writers and share those worlds through fiction, art, and game design.
Held on the historic campus of Wofford College in South Carolina, USA, Shared Worlds takes multi-disciplinary learning to a new level. During this two-week-long residential campus learning experience, students will work together with authors and instructors to create entire worlds, complete with history, economy, language and culture. Students will write in those worlds, share those worlds and apply those worlds to fiction, art, and game design.
