Where stories take place can be significant, especially if the location is unfamiliar, away from the usual—and even possibly magical. I’ve written about the potential for a certain kind of setting in The ALAN Review: “The ‘Necessary Wilderness’: Liminal Settings for Adolescent Emotional Growth in Four Novels by David Almond.” The article includes ideas about how teachers, workshop leaders, and students can find such settings in the everyday world.
Look for my upper middle grade short stories in Hunger Mountain Review and the literary magazine, The Wax Paper.
