Writespace Workshop: "Tension: The Secrets of How to Build It, Keep It and Increase It" with Cassandra Clarke
Nothing keeps a reader turning pages like tension. In this three-hour workshop, attendees will consider how writers can effectively build tension in their writing. The class will discuss the elements of tension — from cliff hangers to pacing, from character motivations to story stakes — and dissect some high-tension examples from published stories.
Guests will participate in several writing exercises in order to put these elements to work. Bring a laptop or pen and paper and be prepared to write, share and try new things.
