Event description

Description

Desire, conflict, and choice are critical to good story telling—without them you may have fiction, but you most certainly will not have a story. Through a combination of lecture, in-class exercises, and discussion, this three-hour interactive workshop will show you how to weave these elements into your short stories as we explore the structural elements shared by all stories, uncover the differences between plot and structure, see how character drives story, and give you the tools you'll need to build emotionally satisfying stories again and again.
