Deep Craft: Shaping Scenes--VIRTUAL!

  • Date: 01-23-2021 to 03-13-2021
  • Time: 9:00 am EST to 11:30 am EST

Scenes are the building blocks of narrative, but scenes tend to get short shrift in terms of exploration of how they are built. In this eight-week series, we will dive deep into the basics of scene craft, with particular focus on Focal Point, Tension, Negotiation, and Images. Tina Neyer will instruct this series for those writing longer prose projects, from memoir to novels. Co-facilitated by Karen Novak. **REGISTER BY DECEMBER 2ND FOR EARLY BIRD SPECIAL!**
