Setting the Scene: Using Place to Advance Your Story
In many novels, setting is as important as the characters and stories that take place there. What would Harry Potter be like without Hogwarts? Or Sherlock Holmes without London? In this presentation, author Erica Wright shows writers how to seamlessly incorporate setting in a way that advances their stories.
Erica Wright's latest crime novel The Blue Kingfisher (Polis) is filled with "substance, entertainment, and chills-a-plenty" according to The Seattle Review of Books. Her debut, The Red Chameleon (Pegasus), was one of O, The Oprah Magazine's Best Books of Summer 2014. She is also the author of the poetry collections Instructions for Killing the Jackal (Black Lawrence Press) and All the Bayou Stories End with Drowned (Black Lawrence Press). She is the poetry editor and a senior editor at Guernica Magazine as well as a former editorial board member for Alice James Books.
