Make the deepest story revisions you’ll ever make. By combining the approaches of two award-winning authors, you’ll learn powerful tools to see your story draft from a unique perspective. “Re-see” the landscape of your story, including point-of-view, character, scene beats, narrative space, narrative distance, emotional terrain, and narrative energy. “Re-dream” your story as a person, invigorating its heart, illuminating its head, exciting its body, strengthening its soul.
This workshop is for both fiction and creative non-fiction writers of all levels.
