Diving into the Details

with Christi Craig

November 10, 2018

Details play a significant role in our writing, whether we write poems, essays or novels. Details build storydeepen story, and provide more ways for readers to connect with story. In this workshop, we will look at all three functions of details as they apply to setting, place, and person, drawing from examples and diving into writing exercises. Writers will leave the workshop with a clearer understanding of how details may work to enhance their writing and with a list of resources for further study.
