Pictures as the Jump-Off Point for the Fiction Writer
Half-Day Fiction Writing Workshop in Westchester County, NY.
Saturday, February 24th, 12:30-3:30
As a published author and writing coach for more than thirty years, one of my passions is teaching my students the craft and art of fiction writing.
One of the ways I do this is by holding half-day and whole-day workshops for fiction writers living in and around Yorktown Heights, NY.
Pictures As a Jump Off Point For The Fiction Writer is the first in my 2018 series.
A Rapid-Fire Writing Workshop of Images to Stir the Cauldron of Your Imagination!
In this workshop, we'll get the imagination going with quick, two-minute, five-minute, and ten-minute writing sessions that are inspired by pictures you'll randomly pick from a large collection I call "People Prompts." You'll have to write fast so you get out of your own way and let the character tell the story!
After the warm-up with the quick writes, we'll move on to developing a longer story.
What Ifs? are an excellent way to open up first draft writing, and we'll use this technique throughout the workshop.
These prompts are picture and writing prompts as well as "Mystery Prompts" such as this: Use these three elements as part of a story: A jammed lock, the scent of jasmine, and a sweet summer breeze.
