Course Description

As a writer, you can tell your reader that your aunt was a careful and methodical person, or you can show your aunt in her kitchen, apron on, preparing dinner with an array of cookbooks, mixing bowls and expensive implements you’ve never seen. You can tell your reader that your new apartment looked cold and sterile, or you can show the bare white walls and recently shampooed carpet, the un-curtained windows that looked out over an empty, snow-covered parking lot. When you show the people, places, and happenings in your story, you’re allowing your reader to enter into the actual texture of events themselves, to feel, see, hear, hear, taste, and smell what it was like to be present. Join us for this one-day intensive and discover how to find the best details for your story. In-class writing exercise will be part of this one-day workshop. As one editor says, "Get the name of the dog!"
