Class: Worldbuilding as a Banquet

Instructor: Fran Wilde

Next class date is Sunday, November 1, 2020, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific Time.

Like a meal, a banquet is a collection of layers. And while these layers do include the meal itself, a banquet is also a rich, deep-dive into the politics of proximity, excess, calamity, and power. (For those who want to take this class, it’s a good idea to do Worldbuilding as a Meal first.) To do so, we’re going to worldbuild on a much bigger level.


Classes are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. They are recorded for the benefit of class members only.

Cost is $99 ($79 for Patreon supporters and returning students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive a discount or free classes, depending on their support level.

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • Which class or classes and the dates you would like to register
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, Venmo, or some other means.

  • How you heard about Cat’s classes

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for up to three classes.
