Create Effective Settings in Young Adult and Middle Grade

All Levels | Achieve more with your fictional settings. Transitional places such as alleys, seashores, and graveyards are known as liminal spaces. Such spaces and times (such as midnight) evoke deeply ingrained emotional responses in readers, and that’s particularly true for young readers who are in a time of transition themselves. We’ll explore how to create compelling settings and use them more effectively to increase suspense, help young readers identify with your characters, and make your narrative arc more convincing.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
