Time: 12:00am - 12:00am PT
Capacity: seat

Member Price: $85.50

When your writing has a “sense of place,” what exactly does it have? We’ll trace the concept of “sense of place” back through two centuries, drawing on the work of various scholars, from architects to theologians. Then we’ll dig into a big toolbox to help you create a strong sense of place on the page, improving everything from characterization to dialogue in the process. Writers working in all genres or between them are welcome.
