The scene is a building block of fiction and memoir. During this discussion we will take a deep dive into the components of scene writing. What makes a scene compelling? How can we make scenes vivid and earn their place on the page? If scenes must move stories forward, and reveal character, how can you include both external events and interiority? What about handling time? Character’s goals? Obstacles? And, when is it best to use summary?
Through writing examples, prompts and ample discussion, you will leave this workshop with a firmer grip on how to enliven your work with scene. Each writer should come to the workshop with a scene that has been dogging them, either it isn’t coming to life on the page, or you just can’t bring yourself to write it yet. Let’s get it down and done.
