Flannery O'Connor wrote, "Anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days." Eudora Welty said, "Place is one of the lesser angels that watch over the racing hand of fiction." With the words of Flannery and Eudora in mind, my focus as a creative writing teacher is to help my students find their voices, discover place as character, and learn how a strong sense of setting breathes both life and voice into their fictional worlds where they are the story-catchers.
