Elements of Scene
Scenes are dramatized moments that engage characters or speakers in action and dialogue. Scene writing is one of the essential building blocks of prose writing and can be vital to plot development. Used by both fiction and creative nonfiction writers, scenes pull readers into the work and help them to “see” the characters and the world the writer has developed. This workshop will focus on the important elements needed to write a strong scene and will provide some tips on how to make scenes in your own writing stand out. Come ready to write a scene or two!
Elements of Scene. Tuesday, January 5, 6:30 to 7:30 PM EST, on Zoom. Course fee is $15 (scholarships are available). Register by January 2.
