This was the first Podcast I have participated in, and it was listed as being presented by the Institute of Children's Literature. Regardless, I am a writer of adult stories, and this Podcast gave me some true gems of wisdom in creating settings that pull the reader in to a particular moment and scene in a story, whether the story is for children or adults. It was only 10 minutes in length, but Katie explained 5 particular elements for creating settings that will add interest to the story and keep the reader immersed until the end. Looking forward to the next one.
