Writespace Workshop: "Crafting Effective Prose"
All stories requires fascinating characters and a compelling plot to be successful. But how do we reveal those characters and stories? Movies get images, music and sound. Comic books get art and writing. Prose fiction, though, just gets words.
In this workshop, guests will examine these powerful building blocks of fiction by focusing on the importance of effective prose. How can the prose of a story highlight and enhance classic story elements like character, structure and plot arcs? How many metaphors are too many? Should we all just be trying to write like Hemingway?
Through a combination of writing exercises and discussion of classic examples of effective prose, the class will answer these questions and more.
