About this course:

Setting and Description are foundational to a story and can support larger themes well if done thoughtfully with fresh and vivid language, and with attention to detail, implication, and perspective. They can, in effect, give one's characters a home or space to work within, as well as open up possibilities for deepening and expanding the scope of any story. Learn how to create vivid and descriptive settings through a one-day workshop that explores how to write with sensory detail.
