Hello people in LitReactor!

My name is San and I am from the MA Narrative Environments course at Central Saint Martins in London.

Now there is a project researching on the different narrative modes of textual storytelling and visual storytelling. I am looking for writers who write stories, fictions or poems as research collaborators.
If you are interested in this project, I would like to invite you to be involved, and your works will be exhibited.

Send me an email if you feel like to know more about it:


This project is particularly researching the significance of settings in narratives, which I believe that unfamiliar perceptions of spaces give more possibilities for imaginations.

As I am not a writer, any comments from people here will be really helpful to me! I appreciate any thoughts that you kindly give on this topic!
Thanks in advance!

Hi San,

This looks really interesting. I sent you an email with some further questions.

If anyone is interested this is the course that San is following.

I wouldn't have time to collaborate, but if it's helpful from the writing perspective, here's a short blog post I wrote long ago about the importance of setting and location, with examples and ideas. Best of luck with it!

Thanks, Julie! I got your email.


And also thank you, Gordon. That is exactly what I want to know more about. It's really helpful!

Honestly I'm still developing my own theories on the importance of setting. I'm real big at map drawing, and sketching plot points. It's also important to me, for them not to feel like they are in a white room. But other than that, I'm not sure how helpful I would be.
