Place plays an important role in both fiction and nonfiction writing, often assuming the role of another character in novels, short stories, memoir, essays and literary journalism. In this adult workshop, we’ll consider writers who have made place and location central to to their writing. Participants will write about personal and public landscapes from a variety of perspectives, from memories of home to capturing places visited. Exercises will include incorporating multi-sensory detail, the role of research, and using place to support character description. Fiction writers who are setting their work in real-life places also will benefit from this workshop.
