Writing Class: Scene vs. Summary (Denver, CO)

How do you decide when to stay in a scene, and when to rush a reader through? Too much scene and it's impossible to tell what matters. Too much summary and the reader can't get emotionally invested. Where's the balance? We'll look at some examples of how writers have handled this question well, and do a little experimental surgery on less successful efforts to find a happy medium. We'll discuss common errors in scene and summary pacing and look to our own writing to find places to improve.

Writing Class: The Supporting Cast (Denver, CO)

Sure, your main character is fascinating, but what about the rest of the folks who populate your story? We’ll discuss techniques for livening up the best friends, co-workers, waiters, and assorted spear-carriers in your writing. Come prepared with some of your secondary characters who could use a personality infusion for use in exercises.
