Event description
Learn and master the art of creating a flowing narrative - whether for that short story, a novel, or just to tell your own life's tale.

About this Event

This week's workshop is on Get the picture; unfolding your scenes. It is part of a 12 week long course, and will be focusing on the adage of 'a picture being worth 1000 words', and how we can also turn a picture into a 1000 words.

Photographs are fantastic, films, videos, all the various pictorial storytelling mediums offer a kaleidoscope of stories for audiences to enjoy, but they have never truly outdone a well crafted narrative.

Whether it's another adaption of Austen, or a retelling of Tolkien, it's the use of imagery that holds the reader's attention, and it's why writing will always paint the greatest pictures.

As with all the workshops, there will be class work, discussions, and writing exercises within the allotted time frame.

For new writers, it is strongly encouraged to enrol in the full course, which can be found here, as it will provide a solid foundation from which the budding author can start their storytelling path.

Learning and mastering the art of creating a flowing narrative is a lifelong process - whether for that's short stories, a novels, or just telling your own life's tale.

Being able to cohesively tell that story is highly satisfying, and it also increases your general communication skills - which is great for those interpersonal relationships at work and at home!

These workshops can be taken one module at a time, or as a whole, so you can choose which areas you'd like to focus on, or complete the entire creative process.
