The Richness of Place: Setting in Fiction!
Join 826michigan and Doug Trevor for "The Richness of Place: Setting in Fiction", the latest entry in 826michigan's How To Write Like I Do series of writing seminars for adults!

Often when we think of writing a story we begin with characters or plot. The settings for our works can sometimes feel ancillary to what we are doing as writers. But the places in which we place our characters themselves become characters in our work: for better or worse. A flat, unremarkable setting, for example, can unintentionally make a story feel flat and unremarkable. In this workshop, we will think about how to develop and manage settings in our work, and consider some literary examples in which the richness of place adds immeasurably to the story in question.

Trevor's short stories have appeared in "The Paris Review," "Glimmer Train," "The New England Review," "Black Warrior Review," among many others. His work has also been anthologized in "The O.Henry Prize Stories" and "The Best American Nonrequired Reading." His first collection of stories, "The Thin Tear in the Fabric of Space," won the Iowa Short Fiction Award and was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award for First Fiction. His first novel is under contract with Delphinium Books.

Proceeds from How To Write Like I Do benefit 826michigan's FREE creative writing workshops for students 6-18 in Washtenaw County. This series is made possible with generous support from Thomson-Shore.
