Overview

In this Creative Writing - The Craft of Setting and Description course offered by Coursera in partnership with Wesleyan University aspiring writers will be introduced to the techniques that masters of fiction use to ground a story in a concrete world.  

From the most realist settings to the most fantastical, writers will learn how to describe the physical world in sharp, sensory detail.
