Description

Learn to write science fiction and fantasy from a master

You've always dreamed of writing science fiction and fantasy tales that pull readers into extraordinary new worlds and
fantastic conflicts. Best-selling author Orson Scott Card shows you how it's done, distilling years of writing
experience and publishing success into concise, no-nonsense advice. You'll learn how to:

* utilize story elements that define the science fiction and fantasy genres
* build, populate, and dramatize a credible, inviting world your readers will want to explore
* develop the "rules" of time, space and magic that affect your world and its inhabitants
* construct a compelling story by developing ideas, characters, and events that keep readers turning pages
* find the markets for speculative fiction, reach them, and get published
* submit queries, write cover letters, find an agent, and live the life of a writer

The boundaries of your imagination are infinite. Explore them with Orson Scott Card and create fiction that casts a
spell over agents, publishers, and readers from every world.
