Scenes — and their sequels — are the building blocks of storytelling, whether it’s fiction or memoir. You can create a plot from a list of key scenes. The “sequel” is the back end of a scene, showing how the world has changed after the action in the scene. The class will explore how to create scenes that are fractals of your larger story, complete with dialog, motive, conflict, drama, and resolve. In these six two-hour classes, we will spend the first hour looking at the principles of great scenes, and the second hour looking at scenes submitted by students. Course materials include handouts for each session.


Workshop and Class Refund Policy
If you cancel one week before the beginning date of the workshop or class, you will receive a full refund. Cancellations after one week prior up to 24 hours prior to the beginning of the workshop or class will receive a credit only toward a future workshop or class of your choice. If you do not cancel or don’t show up for the workshop or class you will receive no refund and no credit. For multi-session classes, if you miss a class, you receive no refund. We pay our instructors based on how many students enroll, so you are part of that roll count if you don’t cancel as detailed above.
