      Description: We’ll look at effective scene-setting such as sensory detail, character, dialog, and plot. Through examples, discussion, and a writing exercise, students will practice using these building blocks to craft their own scenes. For fiction and creative nonfiction writers., Gail Folkins is the author of the memoir Light in the Trees, named a 2016 Foreword INDIES finalist in the nature category, and Texas Dance Halls: A Two-Step Circuit. Folkins teaches creative writing at Hugo House.
