During this time when our normal writing routines (alongside most other routines!) have been disrupted, we’re sharing short videos designed to help us all get unstuck, move forward, or find a new direction for our writing projects.


In Episode 8 of our “Write On Prompts” video series, GrubStreet Instructor Ethan Gilsdorf shares a prompt about how to enhance any scene you write with important setting and worldbuilding details.
