Create Effective Settings in Young Adult and Middle Grade

All Levels | Achieve more with your fictional settings. Transitional places such as alleys, seashores, and graveyards are known as liminal spaces. Such spaces and times (such as midnight) evoke deeply ingrained emotional responses in readers, and that’s particularly true for young readers who are in a time of transition themselves. We’ll explore how to create compelling settings and use them more effectively to increase suspense, help young readers identify with your characters, and make your narrative arc more convincing.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
