“Nothing happens nowhere,” says Elizabeth Bowen. In this workshop we will learn to use setting as a map, as a structure for storytelling. Setting can be a situation, a tone, a time, an atmosphere, a relationship, and more. It can be as broad as a country, as narrow as a porch swing. At its best, setting becomes a character in and of itself. In short, setting is the most versatile and under-utilized of all the elements of craft. This interactive and dynamic workshop will give you the means to improve both your fiction and nonfiction stories.
