This interactive workshop teaches writers to distill a moment of change, conflict, contradiction, or mystery to its essence, so that the impact on the writer resonates profoundly with the reader. We will examine inspiring published examples learning exactly how the writer moved and entertained us, then do an exercise to practice those skills. Using the same tools with which we craft fiction, this workshop is an excellent learning environment for both genres. We’ll conclude this fun and dynamic workshop with a review of where to publish. Tell your story as you lived it: moment by moment.
