Picture This: Setting and Description in Stories *NEW*

Place offers rich possibilities to creative writers interested in architecture, nature, and the landscape. Outside or in, spaces can reveal the passage of time, offer figurative language, create atmosphere, and influence—or act as character. Through in-class exercises, peer review, and analysis of published narratives, this workshop will explore setting as a dynamic base for short fiction and memoir, as well as non-fiction features and essays. For the first class, please bring an image of a place or building as a visual prompt. Instructor Rosalie Davis
