Effective and engaging narrative writing depends (among other things) on a clear and effective expression of place -- whether that place is real or imagined. In this course, you will explore a range of genres and forms through the lens of place, focusing on how professional writers evoke a sense of place. You will explore a range of sub-themes, including Writing About Here: an exploration of writing about places that are familiar and real; Writing About There: an exploration of writing about places that are unfamiliar and real, and; Writing About Elsewhere: an exploration of writing about places that are unfamiliar and unreal. You will be guided through the process of creating a range of works, in various forms and genres, including nature writing, travel writing, and works of speculative or imaginative fiction.
