The Craft of Storytelling: Exploring Patterns in Narrative
In this two hour micro-workshop, we will explore different approaches to narrative in fiction. This could be as simple as a point of view or character shift. Or it could be a bit more structural, with a narrative that has a unique shape or pattern. We will look at texts that demonstrate different approaches to narrative, and discuss the different shapes or patterns possible in fiction. We will also do a series of writing exercises to further explore these patterns in your own writing.
This is an interactive workshop using the Zoom web conferencing platform.
