The Doctor, Gallifrey, and Beyond
A workshop for Whovians wanting to try their hand at writing fan fiction. First we’ll explore the legends of Gallifrey, the Timelords, and The Doctor. Then we'll revisit those legends using Joseph Campbell’s famous Hero’s Journey and the Monomyth to learn the secret to writing a great Doctor Who story. Lastly we’ll dive into the Character Generation and Worldbuilding Lab where we’ll create new characters, settings, genres, and plot lines to inspire your future writing.
