The Storytelling in Writing with Alissa Johnson
March 30, 10:00 am-1:00 pm at 610 Clinton St. in Ridgway
There’s nothing like a good story to create a real page-turner, whether you write short stories, essays, memoir or novels. But loving writing doesn’t always mean you feel clear about how to create a story.
In this workshop, we’ll look at how readers engage with story, what makes a story a story, and touch on elements that help bring one to life, including dialogue and description. Includes lecture, discussion, and time for writing.
