Writescape’s Gwynn and Ruth will deliver online workshops for writers who want an in-depth focus on aspects of fiction and memoir. Writescape workshops provide practical handouts, engaging in-class exercises and discussions, and professional facilitators.
Making a Scene will dive deep into the mechanics and benefits of creating engaging scenes. Explore essential elements of plot development in fiction and memoir. From developing dynamics of high tension to choosing when to slow down critical emotional scenes, how a story is paced is a vital tool for writers. Setting, characters and images propel your narrative and enhance the reader’s experience. This workshop will enrich your understanding of the craft.
