Creative Writing: Setting as Character
Date: Friday, May 15 - Sunday, May 17, 2020
Subject: Writing
Instructor: Sarah Loudin Thomas
Share:

Appalachia is practically its own character in the instructor's novels set in West Virginia. We'll gather to talk about how a place (Appalachia or otherwise) can add depth to a story. How do you choose your setting? How do you bring it to life? How much and what types of research should you do? During this weekend class, we'll answer those questions and others, with prompts and practice exercises along the way. This class is best for those who have a fictional work in progress.

Tuition: $354.00
