Due to COVID-19, our workshops are now online
Offered through The Writers’ Community of Durham Region (WCDR), Writescape’s Gwynn and Ruth will deliver online masterclass workshops for writers who want an in-depth focus on aspects of fiction. Writescape workshops provide practical handouts, engaging in-class exercises and discussions, and professional facilitators.
Making a Scene online masterclass workshop:
Making a Scene is a three-part fiction workshop that will dive deep into the mechanics and benefits of creating engaging scenes. You will explore not just what a scene is but how all its elements work together to create vivid building blocks for your story. Understanding more about the structure and nuances of different kinds of scenes – action, contemplative, flashback
– you will write your drafts with more confidence and purpose. In addition, all participants will receive written feedback on a in-course scene assignment.
Wednesdays: February 24, March 3 & 10 — 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. ET
Registration through WCDR: $85 for members & $100 for non-members
