Want to learn how to craft stories with nature at their heart?
Nature Writing Masterclass: The Importance of Place in Children’s and YA with Charlie Archbold
10am – 1pm
Recognised for her ability to ground a story in a particular setting, in this masterclass Charlie Archbold will discuss how writing characteristics of place adds depth and authenticity to stories, allowing the reader the potential to imagine places they’ve never been. Participants will explore how audience and readership guide where you set your story and how places take on their own identity in fiction. You'll discover how point of view can change the way writers write place and delve into the role of place to develop character backstories.
This masterclass is an opportunity for aspiring and emerging writers, across genres, to build skills in this important element of narrative writing. Come prepared to engage in writing exercises that will ground your story and add light and shade to your plot, characters, and dialogue.
