There aren’t a lot of books that help writers create a sense of place in their work. Apart from what is included in this five-part series of articles about creating a sense of place in travel literature, below are a few resources that I can recommend.

Some of the books below are reference books to be used during the writing phase. Some are workbooks designed to help you think about and develop a practice of writing about place. And some are inspirational books that may give you food for thought or insight into how other writers approach their work.
