Nancy Kress likely spoke for a lot of writers when she said, "When I started writing in scenes, I started selling." Designed for writers early in their development, this one-day class will look at what is a scene, how scenes are structured (their function within a larger work and their internal structure), and what elements should be included. Students are asked to bring a scene they are working on, to develop further over the course of the session.
This class take place in person at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Calgary.
