The Smell of Elephant Poo
Creating a Strong Sense of Place
Good writing transports the reader to another place—How does the author best accomplish this? How do we paint vivid scenes and create memorable physical and emotional landscapes? How much detail is too much? How do we avoid rote symbolism and steer clear of cliché? With Iceland for inspiration and a number of practical exercises, this workshop aims to improve the writer’s skill of invoking a convincing sense of place.
