Our November 2017 workshop, “How Does Character Drive Plot?” led by author, actress, and voice-over artist Petrea Burchard, was an interactive exercise in tailoring character descriptions to character wants and needs. Participants brainstormed ways to add depth and breadth to characters-in-progess.
A fun-filled afternoon filled with ideas and inspiration!
At our October 2017 workshop, “How to Write a Novel Using 7 Simple Steps,” author and writing professor JESS LOUREY led attendees step-by-step through her P.O.P. (Pyramid on Point) method of writing prep. She guided a sold-out audience through a series of exercises—from how to isolate the story theme and then expand it, develop character and map setting, to outlining the basic scene structure before the actual writing. From new writers to published authors, attendes left with new ideas and praise. “Best workshop of the year.”…“I learned so much!”…“Amazing.”
We couldn’t agree more. Thank you, Jess!
GEORGIA JEFFRIES guided an enthusiastic group through the rigors of crafting realistic character-speak at our July 2017 “Writing Dialog” workshop. Offering tips on character revelation through conflict, the rhythm of the scene, subtext, power shifts, and showing through action, Georgia had attendees act out scenes, and then led a lively follow-up discussion. We’ll be talking about this one for a long time.
