What is narrative? What is story? And how do narrative and story intersect? In this workshop, Theresa will teach you to identify narrative elements and will show you how to manipulate them to achieve certain effects. These tools are useful at the drafting stage and can make the revision process even smoother. But the main goal is to provide writers with a comprehensive system for understanding what's on the page.
Most of the lessons are suitable for beginning to intermediate writers, but the final lessons introduce some advanced narrative techniques.
Have a few pages of draft material ready for practice sessions, and be prepared to do some writing exercises!
The workshop begins Friday, April 1, 2011, and ends Thursday, April 14, 2011. Cost is $50.00. All courses are conducted on an email loop. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Sign up between now and March 28 -- this class tends to fill fast!
