Join BWBH for this Mindful Writing Workshop
Let’s Begin a Story…or Five
Led online by acclaimed author and master fiction teacher
Beginning a story, putting the first words onto a page or the computer screen, is often the most difficult task for any writer. So, the focus of this workshop will be to get you started on several stories, and then to show you how to follow the language, how to provide telling details for your narrative, and also how to unravel and explore an unstable situation in order to move a story forward toward a satisfying end. We’ll discuss techniques for finding the right character to tell your story, and exploring the ways in which your character will determine their own fate or not. I’ll share some of my favorite quotes from writers, and also suggest sites to explore for further guidance and inspiration.
$55 includes a copy of Pam Painter’s latest short story collection, Fabrications: New and Selected Stories
