The Five Pillars of Place by A.J. Kandathil

Ploughshares Literary Magazine

I just read a great article that I wanted to share with fellow writers who are working on projects that prominently feature place. “The Five Pillars of Place,” by A.J. Kandathil, is available from Ploughshares.

Kandathil identifies the Five Pillars of Place as:

  1. Position
  2. Economy
  3. Young vs. Old
  4. Greek Chorus
  5. Lexicon

In examining each pillar, she raises some very important questions about place that I think all writers should consider.
