FICTION WORKSHOP FOR TEENS

February 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Weave setting into your fiction so it’s part of the action

BRING SETTING TO LIFE: HOW TO INCORPORATE SETTING INTO THE ACTION OF YOUR NOVEL with Liza Wiemer

 

Every writer has heard the advice show, don’t tell. In this writing workshop, author Liza Wiemer will help you weave setting into your writing so that it is part of the action: showing, not telling. We will also explore when and why too much description bogs down the writing as well as how to determine what details are critical and what is enough to set the scene. We’ll do some hands-on exercises so participants should have paper and pen or pencil ready for activities.
