In this workshop, we will explore strategies for drawing the reader into the experiential world of your story. Through examples and exercises, we examine younger perspectives, focusing the way ideas and experiences are measured in an emotionally intuitive way. Meaning is often foregrounded through raw insights and the power of associative imagery.
We will evaluate methods for fine-tuning voice, foregrounding the idiosyncratic lens of your characters.
You will learn
- How to capture original perspectives
- how to find the right voice for your story material
- to establish point of view
- about plotting raw insights
- the power of associative imagery.
