Emerging Writer's Workshop: Setting and Description


Monday March 4, 2019: 7:00pm to 8:45pm


Westgate Branch: West Side Room


Novels and memoirs can’t be separated from their setting, and description will make readers feel fully involved in the story. But what’s the best way to use setting and description in a story?  In this workshop, Bethany Neal and Alex Kourvo will show you how to use appropriate setting and vivid description to heighten character, action, and theme.

This is part of the monthly Emerging Writers Workshops, which offer support, learning, and advice for local authors. Each month, two weeks after the workshop, there is a meet-up where the instructors will read samples of your work and offer advice and assistance in a casual, supportive atmosphere.
