Setting is Character, Character is Setting
Setting is more than a backdrop for fictional characters. Place and character are deeply interwoven, and a writer must be attuned to the how setting impacts character and how characters shape a sense of place in a work of fiction. For LGBTQ writers, setting becomes a particularly important concern of our craft, because the places available to us have been (and often still are) so limited. In the workshop, I offer some concrete tips on how to imbue setting with character and character with a sense of place, and then will lead an exploration of what place means to LGBTQ writers in particular.
