Still Time to Sign Up

My section of “Write Great Fiction: Description & Setting” at Writer’s Digest University has been pushed back to start on May 26, so if you hurry, you can sign up for it!

It’s a great course for both beginner and experienced writers, with something for everyone. If you’ve never tried a Writer’s Digest University course, this is a great one to start with as it’s not too long and at a level that works for everyone.

Workshop Length: 8 weeks

You will learn:

  • How to attune your writer's radar to interesting details and story ideas from real life
  • How to balance showing and telling in constructing a convincing narrative voice
  • How to build your fictional world and descriptions so they serve and illuminate character, motivation, tone, and theme
  • How to engage the senses—and even allow them to cross and overlap—in order to form compelling, potent descriptions, and
  • How to balance the familiar and the unfamiliar in description and setting in order to show the everyday in clear, and surprising, new ways

Who should take this course:

  • Beginning writers who want to strengthen their description and setting skills
  • Novel writers of any genre
  • Short Story writers
  • Creative Nonfiction writers
