SATURDAYS, SEPT. 25th & OCT. 2nd | Does your story never feel finished? Do you feel frustrated when readers say they want ‘more’ but can’t tell you what they mean by ‘more’? This workshop presents a breakthrough approach to creating a whole and satisfying story through the use of seven tools that apply to fiction of all lengths and genres. By the end of the class you will have mastered the seven tools that captivate readers and create a complete story, including indirect dialogue, the artful use of omission, and potent imagery. There will be handouts of examples, exercises, and class discussion. For writers of all forms of fiction as well as creative nonfiction.
