WWf(a)C presents eight weeks of intensive study into the art of creating a story. Many of the principles presented in these workshops are applicable to longer works and short story. Throughout these eight weeks, we will examine various elements of story to help participants increase their knowledge and expertise in the construction of a written story. Each workshop is designed with hands-on exercises to help the writer hone an existing manuscript and in the creation of new material.

Note: Recommended reading: The Obituary Writer by Ann Hood.

Week Three: Giving Purpose to Your Characters. What is an “inciting” incident? Does it always have to involve a death or murder? In the class, we will also review the concepts of character motivation and agency, and the overarching theme of your narrative.
