ONLINE Where’s the Action? A Workshop on Narrative Pace, Architecture, and Transitions
Many editors will tell you that good writing comes down to good transitions. So, how does a writer lead readers through a narrative in a way that is compelling, organized, and smooth? In this workshop, participants will explore tried-and-true ways to structure story, speed and decrease pace, and ensure flow when knotting a story together, scene by scene.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
