As writers, we create a story’s world by playing with and distorting reality but also by staying closely within its boundaries and following its rules. If you’re writing realistic fiction, it’s a tricky but important concept to master as the basis of every successful story. In this workshop, we’ll examine the importance of creating believable and immersive worlds that hook readers from the start and keep them coming back for more.

David Samuel Levinson is the author of the novels Tell Me How This Ends WellAntonia Lively Breaks the Silence, and the story collection, Most of Us Are Here Against Our Will. He’s received fellowships from Yaddo, the Jentel Foundation, Ledig House, the Santa Fe Arts Institute, the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and the Marguerite & Lamar Smith Fellowship for Writers. His stories and poetry have appeared in storySouthThe Brooklyn ReviewPrairie SchoonerThe Toronto QuarterlyWest Branch, and Post Road, among others. He served as the Fellow in Fiction at Emory University from 2013 to 2015. He’s taught online at NYU and UCLA’s Writing Program.
