A writing workshop for any writer concerned with notions of homeland, both real and the imagined. Learn to utilize setting in ways that push, expand, and further the idea of place, and get the tools needed to create a fully realized and immersive fictional world that thrums with the breath of life. Class has four components: readings, story generating exercises, and first-blush in-class feedback, and research tips. The workshop also focuses on ways to conduct research and how to incorporate folktales, music, photography, and other art forms into our place-based writing. In partnership with WCU Graduate Creative Writing Program, Townie Books, and the Crested Butte Library.
