Eugene: Settings with Anthony St. Clair

January 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Why of Where: 4 Ways to Create Vibrant Settings That Take Readers to the Heart of Your Story

The power of setting is not only the power to bring a story alive where it takes place. The power of setting transports the reader to the story’s heart—and from there the reader comes to better understand their own. Setting brings together character, plot, and theme, and without vibrant setting stories fall apart. On January 4th at 6:30PM at Tsunami Books, professional writer, author, and former Mid-Valley Chapter co-chair Anthony St. Clair demonstrates the four simple principles that are key to using setting to bring your story to life.
