Writing the Well-Structured Scene, with Kira Rockwell
Within the overall plot structure of your play, movie, tv episode, or fiction, is a series of stand alone scenes. Each scene is crucial to pace and forward momentum. What attributes make up a well-structured scene? What can you do if you get stuck? How can you spice things up along the way? In this one day seminar, you’ll learn tips and tricks to building scenes in satisfying ways. We’ll touch on elements such as active choice, specificity, turning points, and consequences. Feel free to bring a project that you are currently working on, a fresh idea, or even a blank page. You will have the opportunity to take part in craft based writing exercises, discussion of reading excerpts, and optional time to share an excerpt of your work for on the spot feedback. This class will be taught from a playwriting lens but is open to all writers who craft scenes. Suitable for all levels.
