THE IMPORTANCE OF SETTING - Tutor Elaine Ouston
When we read a novel with a graphic description of the setting, we are transported to that place.
If the description is too brief, then we have no idea what physical situation our characters are in and we lose interest. If it is too long we bore the reader.
The use of our 5 senses is also very important to create a sense of place.
In this workshop, you will be given examples of how to find that perfect balance and exercises on creating a setting that transports us to the place.
Date: Wednesday May 16th
Time: 9.30am to 12.30pm
Where: Gondor Writers’ Centre, 19 Caloundra St, Landsborough.
