How to Craft an Impactful Dystopian Story

with Sowon Kim

During these past recent years, the dystopian genre has been losing its meaning and essence due to many publishers focusing on what's going to make the most money instead of focusing on the writing's quality, which is why its true purpose has been forgotten by many. To craft a truly impactful dystopian story, one must dissect each of its unique elements and learn to correctly weave social issues and themes into plot and worldbuilding. In this workshop, you'll learn Amazon bestselling author Sowon Kim's method for writing in the dystopian genre.
