Unless you are Thomas Hobbes, you probably believe that surroundings can affect a person. A story’s setting is often as significant to the content as its characters. The personality of a locale can define the identity of a screenplay, while also serving as a subtle commentary on a specific time period and culture. Documenting details unique to a milieu can be a difficult but crucial part of the writing process. In this panel, hear from writers that have successfully “set the stage” with stories that invite the setting to take on a role of its own.
