Every story begins somewhere; and ideally that somewhere imbues the story with meaning, brings characters to life and leaves readers “seeing” the story as if it were presented in vivid color on a big screen. But sometimes, the setting is so powerful that it impacts the characters and the plot, as if the setting itself were alive, a character in its own right.
In this workshop, Sanderia Faye will delve into the world of “seeing” as a sensory experience and place as character. Participants look at passages from writers like Toni Morrison, Harper Lee and Maya Angelou to explore how these writers draw readers into their world, how that world is an organic being shaping and being shaped, and how the story could only have taken place there.
