In this workshop, we’ll work on overall story architecture, studying and practicing the fundamental structural features of narrative. We will also scrutinize the sequencing, shaping, and pacing of paragraphs; sentence construction, rhythm, and clarity; word choice; even punctuation. We’ll pay particular attention to such basic storytelling elements as the tease and promise; voice, tone, and point of view; images, figures, motifs, and themes; telling detail and rich description; characters, scenes, and scene-by-scene development; signposts, dramatic tension, turning points and transitions, and overall narrative line.
