Wednesday, 16 September –Nina Kiriki Hoffman joins us to talk about how to ” Widen the World around your Story”

The stories we remember are the ones that take place in wider worlds than what’s on the page, the ones where we get the impression there is history, culture, other people in the story world we’ll never meet but can imagine.

Let’s talk about ways to imply a wider world in your story.
