A group supporting world building for authors of all genres
Welcome to World Weavers
There are many contests on W.com which look at genre stories or answers to a given prompt.
Those of you who have participated in the Character Gauntlet by former user Mynt will know it is a little bit different: 15 days of prompts to help you flesh out your character and earn a little recognition in the process.
The World Weavers’ Championship is my effort to expand on where the Character Gauntlet left off. Here we’ll tackle the set, the cultures and politics and the part your world plays in your story. That’s not to say that this is a strictly fantasy or sci-fi contest! This applies just as much to the fictional representations of contemporary or historical settings.
Round 11 will begin 1 January 2022
Round 11 is planned for January to be a month long pic'n'mix from previous prompts.
Round 12 will be back in 2022 in some format.
Please use the poll at the bottom of this page to tell me what you'd like to see.
World Weavers' Network will also be a forum to find advice, inspiration, and feedback out-of-season.
If you find an item you'd like to highlight or to submit an article of your own, post it in the WWN forum.
If you have any ideas for activities or a contest idea to suggest, please email the WW Judges directly.
Kudos will be awarded and recorded below. You might even earn a merit badge for your trouble!
