Show and Tell: Craft Essentials

March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free – $65

In this session, we will analyze effective examples of both scene and summary by successful writers, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Colum McCann, Mary Karr, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. We will discuss the ways in which both showing and telling can strengthen our writing and improve specific scenes. Writers will see how mini-scenes can bring summaries to life, and how a few lines of summary can create tension and movement within and between scenes. Writers, both fiction and nonfiction, will leave with strategies and exercises to use in their own work. Students are also encouraged to bring examples of their own writing to refer to in class.
