Place in Fiction with Sheila O'Connor
Whether we're placing our story in a familiar landscape, or inventing a fictional reality, the world our characters inhabit will shape their actions and their destinies. How do we create a world so vivid and convincing readers will feel as if they've actually inhabited that place? How do we develop the relationship between character, conflict, and setting? How can we use setting as a springboard for action? Through discussion and writing, we will consider these questions as we develop our own settings. Participants will complete a series of writing exercises designed to help them explore their story's world.  
This two-hour workshop will take place virtually with a brief break.
