World-Building Worksheet

Get to Know Your WorldIn any genre of fiction where you are creating a fictional setting, you will want to consider how your world works. Developing a clear idea of the populations and places involved in your story can help you create a more immersive experience for your reader.

This worksheet can help you define your world’s environments, social infrastructures, and populations. It gives you space to consider how these change, and their impact on the populations. It also gives you space to reflect upon how your narrator perceives all of these factors.

At the end of the worksheet, there is a table for your timeline of events, including the locations and populations involved.
