Event description

Description

The maxim ‘show not tell’ is bandied around so often in creative writing courses that we rarely take the time to interpret and interrogate it. During this daylong course we’ll look at ways to ‘show’ well through creating compelling scenes and appealing to the senses in ways that are innovative and arresting. But we’ll also ask whether ‘telling’ ever has a place in a novel. Through excerpts and exercises, we’ll learn how and when to shift from action to reflection, scene to narration, ‘showing’ to ‘telling’.
