World Building for Novelists by Beth Barany

Broad Universe banner In August 2014, I was interviewed by progressive science fiction author, Michelle Murrain, on my views on world building in fantasy for the monthly Broad Universe podcasts.

We discussed the philosophy of world-building for fantasy, examples of world building, settings for stories, and tips and tools for fantasy world-builders everywhere.

Enjoy the interview here:

BTW, I’m a proud member of Broad Universe, an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, encouraging, honoring, and celebrating women writers and editors in science fiction, fantasy, horror and other speculative genres. I write young adult fantasy and paranormal romance.
