Putting the “Creative” in Creative Nonfiction
Friday, January 11, 2019, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
You know how you can sit around in a group and there is always someone who can tell the wildest, funniest, or most captivating stories? And you wonder how they do it, time and time again. In this workshop we’ll explore how to construct a written, rich narrative. It is all about the details. By the end of this workshop, class participants will be able to 1) create other characters which can aide, or impede your story, 2) create dialogue that is realistic and 3) use our five senses to bring these scenes to life.
When you come to class, be prepared to work with at least three events or experiences for vignettes. We will do a lot of writing and reflection in this class, so come ready to sit, close your eyes, let your mind wander, then write down your vignettes.
