This Must Be the Place: Setting & Atmosphere in Fiction

Setting is more than just a time and a place. It can create the mood and style of your story, as well as being one of the main factors influencing who your characters are and what obstacles they must overcome. Setting can also be a character in and of itself. In this workshop, you’ll learn techniques for creating rich, evocative settings and how to use them to write enthralling fiction that readers can’t put down.
Registration will open September 30th.
