Here There Be Dragons: Creating Fresh Stories in Fantasy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Every genre has its tropes, and fantasy has many: swords and sorcerers, castles and cavalries, dungeon crawls and dazzling dragons. But with more than a century of fantastical storytelling behind us, how does a writer deliver fresh, exciting ideas while giving readers what they want and expect? Adron Buske (host of the Fictitious podcast) talks with a group of professional genre authors about writing to market, how to subvert clichés and expectations, and blazing new trails on the well-trod map of fantasy. Featuring Tomi Adeyemi (author of Children of Blood and Bone), Mary E. Pearson (author of The Remnant Chronicles, Dance of Thieves), Robert Jackson Bennett (author of Foundryside, City of Blades), R. F. Kuang (author of The Poppy War), and Jason Denzel (author of the Mystic trilogy, founder of Dragonmount).
