Setting as Character in Middle Grade/Young Adult [Amanda Hosch]
Intermediate | A well-developed setting transports a young reader firmly into another world. We’ll analyze strong settings from recent MG/YA novels, seeing how place can comfort and/or challenge the main character and deepen inner growth. For in-class writing exercises, we’ll use prompts to explore giving setting a personality, both as a refuge and as a threat. This class is intended for adult writers of middle grade/young adult fiction.
