Learn to Layer Scenes: A preview of Jordan’s Fiction Magic Workshop

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.
