Setting and Description

A Believable World of People, Places, and Events

for Writers of Fiction

How necessary is setting to a story?  How much description is too much?  In what ways do details and setting blend into plot and character development?  How can you use setting and description to add complexity to your story? 

The topics under discussion, just to name a few are:  sensory description, description of characters, time and place, as well as answering the important question:  Too Little, Too Much?  This nuts-and-bolts workshop, complete with practical exercises throughout, will give you tips and techniques to:  establish a credible sense of time and place; use description and setting that move your story forward; keep excess description from littering your story; craft effective description and setting for different genres; and master showing vs. telling.
