Writing Workshops

Tools for Building Story


This six-part course is packed with brainstorming exercises. As they unleash your imagination, you gain the practical tools and the confidence to write your novel. Rather than writing alone, you’ll work in small groups with selections from a huge portfolio of pictures that reveal character through body language, clothing, and facial gestures. With more images, you’ll build the character’s family and unearth the makings of a dynamic backstory. Identify your characters’ hot buttons. Polish them. Press them! Add more characters and watch a plot develop. Make the setting energize the plot. Discover what really matters in a sex scene. You'll walk out of class with a valuable collection of handouts you can refer to again and again, and a notebook brimming with ideas for your story.
