Seeing is Believing: The Effective Use of Scene and Setting to Show and Tell
Saturday, 12:30 – 4:30 pm
One session, $80
The foundation of any narrative form is scene and setting. They show characters in action, move the plot forward, affect mood and atmosphere, and can be a metaphor for a story’s meaning. Through a series of writing exercises, participants will become familiar with the main functions of scenes and setting, and some of the best ways to open scenes. We will also examine how to use dialogue and narrative scenes. Participants will have a chance to read their work aloud and will gain helpful feedback. Writers of all levels are welcome.
