ONLINE Exploratory Revision
“Glance is the enemy of vision.” –Ezra Pound
This workshop focuses on diving deep into a scene from your work-in-progress with techniques from other forms. Bring a copy of a stalled scene, a wandering scene, or a scene without resolution for your own personal exploration and excavation. We will look for action, but also reaction, what is said and done, but also why. We will experiment to find out more about our characters in scene, to see and write them in practical yet playful re-vision.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
