Craft Talk: Making Scenes with Holly Goddard Jones Oct 18, 2011 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM The Library Assembly Room, 3rd Floor of Gramley Library,
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.
