Setting as Character – Winter 2022

Whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction, setting is vital to story. Rather than a static playing board on which your characters act, how your characters interact with the world they’re in brings stories to life. Using various exercises, we’ll allow your world to take on a life of its own, and find its voice. For all levels.

Elizabeth Kilcoyne is a YA horror author from Lexington. Her forthcoming novel, Wake the Bones, will be available from Wednesday Books in July 2022.

Setting as Character is part of the Compelling Characters Package, which also includes Building Character and Using Dialogue to Create Memorable Characters. Click here to register for the Compelling Characters Package at a discounted rate.
