When readers look back on the stories they love, they think of scenes. Scenes are the basic building blocks of a chapter or act: They move the story forward; divide it into digestible units; and keep readers engaged, asking, What happens next? As Ralph Waldo Emerson, says, “The writer is an explorer. Every step is an advance into a new land.” Taking small steps, journeying into a new land, is the essence of scene writing. Join me in this four-week course as we experiment with several types of scenes and link them together to move our stories and our writing forward.

This is an interactive online course using the Zoom web conferencing platform.

Laura Swart is passionate about writing and teaching. She has taught creative and critical writing to adults for thirty years, encouraging students to find and raise their writing voices. She is a published novelist, poet, and playwright and the director of I-AM ESL, an online language school that uses story and song to teach the intricacies of English to refugees. Laura’s degrees and research in education, philosophy, and theology have shaped her thinking and woven themselves into her classroom and her writing.
