Charles DeLint has written, “When you are touched by magic, nothing’s ever quite the same again.” During our time together, we will explore how to create stories that bring a touch of wonder, magic, to our readers. How do we set the stage for wonder? How do we balance that wonder/that magic with the story’s reality?
