What’s Landscape Got to Do With it? Memoir Workshop with Karen Auvinen (via Zoom)


WHAT’S LANDSCAPE GOT TO DO WITH IT? Setting can do a lot of the heavy lifting in any story. How your characters interact with place or other characters in a given landscape, coupled with how you choose to describe it, can suggest more about what is happening in a story or scene than straight telling. Plan to write and
experiment.

NB: This class will be taught on Zoom and will be capped at 15 students. Registrants will receive the Zoom link to the email address they use to register.
