You’ve felt the pulse-pounding drama of a good story, turning pages at a furious clip, caught up in a book so real, you feel as though it is happening to you. What makes that story, book or essay come to life? Strong, powerful scenes. Learning to write scenes is crucial to writing powerful narratives that compel, and it simplifies the writing process.

In this teleseminar you’ll learn:

  • The necessary “ingredients” of a scene
  • Why scenes might be the most important craft element you can learn
  • How to use scenes to bring memoir to life
  • How to balance exposition and scenes
