Jordan Rosenfeld, the author of Make a Scene, will talk about how to layer scenes to create a textured narrative where all the parts function in different ways and yet work together to create a book that is interesting and dynamic.
Just as you can’t build a house from one solid piece of wood, neither can you write a book in one solid chunk of prose. A good narrative is built on scenes.
Just as in building a house you use different kinds of wood, in a narrative you need to use different kinds of scenes for different purposes. Long and fast, contemplative and active, your narrative is a mosaic of different scene types that create a unified tapestry.
In this 30 minute preview, Jordan will take you through the basic types and “energy” of scenes to help you learn to create a multi-textured narrative in your memoir or essay.

I’m a published freelance “inspirational” / journalist writer(magazine articles & short story in a book of compilations). Now, after becoming board certified as a healthcare chaplain with eight years of practice and 3,000+ volunteer hours in an acute care regional hospital I want to return to publishing using my chaplain’s voice. I’d like to write my memoir about being born with an inoperable visual impairment and how it has integrated into my personal spiritual formation and professional interfaith ministry today. I need writer’s support, writing guidance and enncouragement!
