Description of Class
Do you have a collection of scenes that you’re trying to string together into a story or essay? Or does it feel like your current structure is not doing your story justice?
Author Nadine Kenney Johnstone understands this structure-battle and will share the secret strategies she has used to turn a messy collection of scenes into an engaging, fluid piece of writing.
Open to writers of all genres, in this single-session, Saturday morning class, you will learn about and try out various structures–(W, braided, framed, fractured, circular, etc.) to find the one that is right for your writing. We will look at published models that use these structures, study the elements of the structure, and then plug our own writing into these structure templates.
The goal of this seminar is to try out many different structures so that you can find the one the works best for you.
This seminar includes lecture, writing exercises, and sharing. Fiction, memoirists, and non-fiction writers welcome.
*Bring your laptops and have a story or essay in mind that you plan on tackling. Additionally, please bring a printed out hard copy version of the story or essay.Top
