“Setting is not inert. It is activated by point of view.” – Carmen Maria Machado, In the Dreamhouse
The setting of a story is more than a backdrop. Where a story unfolds colors and shapes the story itself. And when setting is done well, it has the power to transport readers in remarkable and lasting ways. During this panel discussion, we’ll journey with three accomplished authors — Cristina García, Ursula Pike, and John Pipkin — to the locales of their books, covering the considerations, research, and craft that results in fully realized and transportive settings.
This conversation will be moderated by WLT Program Director Sarah Renee Beach.
