Using Emotion to Develop Location

6 March @ 18:30 - 21:30

Learn how to develop location and character in your writing using emotion as a guide!

About this Event

Location is every bit as vital as character when it comes to story creation. It’s impossible to develop a location on paper without applying our own emotions, perceptions and preconceptions.

Learn to create the perfect location for your fiction- whether it’s a cupboard, town, city or planet. Use your own geographical experiences and the application of your five senses to correctly build a sense of place that fits your genre, your time period and your plot line.

This friendly and informative workshop uses discussion and writing exercises to help new and experienced writers use their experiences to perfect the creation of place in fiction. The overall aim is to improve the portrayal of location in fiction.
