Craft Talk: Making Scenes with Holly Goddard Jones
Stories are generally built around scenes, but it can be challenging to decide which scenes deserve dramatization. Many writers, when confronted with this confusion, actually choose to illustrate rather than to dramatize--to pick a representative moment or episode rather than the moment that advances plot. This talk will focus on how to recognize the difference between illustrative and dramatic scenes, how to turn illustrations into dramatizations, and when it is, in fact, useful and right to use an illustration. Sponsored by the Center for Women Writers.
