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.
Wendy Call is a recent writer-in-residence at a dozen locales, including national parks, universities, a public hospital, and Richard Hugo House. Her 2011 book No Word for Welcome won the 2011 Grub Street National Book Prize for Nonfiction.
