Individual scenes are essential building blocks to a story, and often the most neglected aspect of storytelling. Participants will study aspects of successful scenes: setting, inner structure, character, POV, movement choreography and dialogue. Students will gain experience in writing scenes by learning how to identify them, using published works to outline scene beginnings, middles, and ends, and will outline some scenes of their own.
