Story building isn’t just for the page – bring your own fantastical world to life on this role-playing masterclass.

Explore sources for successful role-play narratives and hear advice from veteran plot-writers and game designers on this weekend course. You will develop a collaborative writing practice, and create a group scenario for your characters to play through. This course will familiarise you with the many constituent parts that make role-play writing an engrossing experience.

Dr Anna Milon is a researcher in speculative fiction and pagan studies, who recently completed her doctoral thesis on environmental narratives in fantasy fiction and Live Action Role-Play at the University of Exeter.

Anna teaches the history of witchcraft at Advanced Studies in England, was briefly a trustee of The Tolkien Society, and previously designed events for the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and the Bodleian Library in Oxford. You can find her work in the journals Folklore, Correspondences, and Hellebore, or follow her exploits on Twitter @hexnhart. In Summer, Anna can be found in the woods with a foam sword and a quill, planning the fates of fantasy kingdoms. Last we heard, she was petitioning a dragon to open a bank.
