Your story world is more than just the place where your story happens. In every genre, your settings can reveal new aspects of your character to the reader, reinforce your themes and move the plot forward. We’ll take a deep dive into understanding the intersection between story and setting and how to use this knowledge to make your narratives richer and deeper. Learn the five mistakes that writers often make when writing setting, and leave with practical suggestions and prompts for how to avoid those issues in your own manuscripts. This class will be meeting style: your camera and microphone will be on unless you turn them off. Please keep your microphone muted unless you are talking. Note: this class has a handout available to registered attendees on the handouts page on the media menu.
