How to Show: A Four-Week Craft Workshop, with Kira Rockwell
How to Show is a four week, skill-centered workshop that takes the common idiom, “Show vs Tell,” one, two, three steps further, to show you how to effectively employ this advice to strengthen your work. This workshop is designed to equip you with the practical tools and know-how needed to show your audience Character, Relationships, Arcs, and Consequences. The trap of telling typically happens early in the writing process, since in order to show something, you need to know the details first. Therefore, this class is best suited for writers who are currently revising an early draft, though all levels are invited. Students will gain skills that will strengthen their structure, characterization, pacing, and embodied writing practices. Each week includes writing prompts, craft-based lessons, reading and discussion of showing in published work, as well as light feedback. The workshop is open to all narrative genres.
Thursdays, 6 – 8:30 p.m., four-week session begins October 5th ($195)
