In storytelling, place and space can be used to set a mood for the reader and also influence a character’s decision or action. Senses — of taste, smell, sound, touch — help create vivid mental imagery. Adequate use of these concepts not only makes your writing sharp but also unforgettable. In this masterclass award-winning author of the critically-acclaimed novels The Dragonfly Sea and Dust will teach you how to create a deeply textured, riveting story carrying these elements. The masterclass will cover tips to consider before choosing a place/space to set your story and how to make your story come alive by engaging your readers’ five senses.
