Fundamentals of Fiction Craft: Setting and Place

In this short class, we will navigate the complexity of setting and place in a work of literary fiction and explore how to get the very most of the fullness of the setting in which our literary fiction stories take place. Far more than a point of latitude and longitude on a map or two players at a table in a kitchen, setting, when presented effectively, encompasses a world of details and information that help to both ground your reader and submerges them in the fullness of a place, its history, peoples, geological record, weather, topography, folkways, and on, and on. It might be one of the more important and often ignored items of craft a writer can learn and use to achieve, “the next level,” from their writing.   

This class will be held online, via Zoom.

Sorry, but there are no available courses being offered this semester.
