As a literature teacher, I spend a lot of time discussing setting with my students. Setting serves so many important functions, including but not limited to: the establishment of mood; the portrayal of tone; the fortification of certain literary devices/elements like conflict, foreshadowing, and irony, etc.
Setting provides a unique attraction to readers of all kinds, but I feel there is a special connection to fans of HORROR. And being a writer, I’m always looking for awe-inspiring settings to include in the stories I write.
