OutWrite Writing Workshop: Setting

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: The DC Center

Free. Open to the Public. Led by John Copenhaver, author of DODGING AND BURNING.

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.
