Setting is often treated as just window dressing, but it can inform every part of a story, right down to plotting and pacing and how characters speak and behave.

In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to turn Generic Town, USA, into a living, breathing place that your characters inhabit. We’ll talk about how to make real places come alive on the page—even places the author has never set foot in, even places that don’t actually exist. We’ll talk about how to use little details to ground the reader in the setting and make her see the world around these characters. And we’ll talk about what tools you can use to help research and flesh out your Generic Town into a place your reader wants to visit.

Excellent course notes, video and handouts. Very useful information about research and settings. She opened my eyes to see the topic in a whole new light and with greater depth. Setting can be a character in some cases, besides the stage the novel occurs on or the backdrop which foreshadows things to come. The instructor is accessible to questions and is a fund of knowledge and experience. Thank you.
