The seven Houses of 'Game of Thrones' by George R. R. Martin.

From the history of fantastical story elements to the evolution of different styles and worldbuilding techniques, this course will focus on some of the foundation stones of fantasy writing - and ways to start putting them together. Every week will start with a mini-lecture and some reading, which will include extracts of novels and stories from right across the genre. Students will also have the chance to take part in online discussion and writing exercises, and to give and receive feedback on their own writing.
