Creating Otherworldly Cultures

By Orbit LIVE!

Many fantasy and science fiction series feature characters who are not humans from our world—whether they’re aliens, faeries, or simply humans who live in a world created just for the book. On this panel, several authors will discuss the process of building a new culture from scratch, building on real-world inspiration and making fictional cultures both authentically alien and relatable to readers.

Featuring Ann Leckie, Suyi Davies Okungbowa, Essa Hansen, and Davinia Evans
