Workshop for :

Sophfronia Scott

WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN? Navigating Your Novel or Memoir Through The Sea of Time.

According to author Joan Silber, "The end point of a story determines its meaning, and one of the main tasks a writer faces is to define the duration of a plot."

 

That task, whether you're writing the story of an hour or the epic of a generation, can determine whether your narrative sails to the shore or sinks under the weight of confusion.

 

In this talk we'll look at how time supports the telling of your story and experiment with outlines and note-taking to examine the various ways to develop the motion of time in your fiction and nonfiction.
