Writing a Sense of Place
This seminar is designed for writers who wish to develop the sense of place in their fiction. Through an engaging process of providing examples, sharing ideas, and writing prompts, writers will further develop the sense of place in their stories by exploring their characters and their view of the world. We will study such writers as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Louise Erdrich, Larry McMurtry, and James Baldwin. Students will write or revise a scene, discovering how to build worlds through imagery, characters’ thoughts and perceptions, and dialogue. Students will have a chance to share and provide feedback for each other’s work.
