About

The Worldbuilding School is an online resource dedicated to helping authors, artists and game designers build their own imaginary worlds.

Hi, my name’s Nate Smith and I’m the founder of the Worldbuilding School.

Since 2010 I’ve published worldbuilding related content such as:

  • The Author’s Guide to Drawing Maps
  • The Worldbuilding Framework
  • The Worldbuilding Library
  • Vancano’s Map Generator
  • Plus many maps, articles and other resources

And I’d like to produce even more.

But that’s where I need your help.

Since the site’s birth it has been funded through my freelance work (digital marketing) and a small amount from products such as Vancano’s Map Generator and a number of paid maps. Which is fine, I enjoy running the site and don’t mind paying to keep the lights on.

However, the biggest challenge now is time and resources.

In the early years of the site I was single and a full-time freelancer so I could put time into producing content. Now I’m a father, married and working for an awesome University as their Web Content Officer. Life is good, but it means time is limited so the Worldbuilding School gets neglected.

With your help I would like to change that.

By becoming a patron of the Worldbuilding School you’ll provide the resources needed to move the website forward. I’ll be able to focus more energy on the site but also provide paid writing and creative opportunities to the worldbuilding community.

Plus, you’ll get great worldbuilding content.

Here’s what else you’ll get (the most important part)

  • Access to patron-only content
  • Access to added patron info in the WBSchool newsletter (if signed up)
  • Patron-only polls
  • My gratitude for supporting the Worldbuilding School

Risks

As mentioned, time and resources are the biggest hurdle to producing content for the Worldbuilding School. But with funding from the community I’ll be able to hire writers, artists and other skilled professionals as needed.

When it comes to producing the content, my day job means I have a wealth of experience delivering complex content projects. So I’m confident that this can be done - it’s what I do day in and day out
