This workshop is for everyone who thinks “I should write about that!” but isn’t sure where to start…or where to go after the story/memory/experience has been described. A novel or a memoir? A journal or a screenplay? Whatever your preference or your dream, you will take a vignette from your life, or the life of someone who came before you, and turn it into the heart of your work. The focus in this course is the story, yes, but also the depth and breadth of emotions and creativity that you bring to your work. We’ll discuss elements of voice, point of view, character and plot development, continuity and conflict. You will be encouraged to read your work aloud, although you may choose not to. By the end of this three-hour course, you will have a good part of your work on the page!
