What makes a story tick? What makes a hero embark on a journey filled with the promise of adventure and the inevitability of peril? If you are trying to figure out the central, driving force of your story and how to structure and propel your narrative forward, this workshop is for you! We will explore what makes every character tick and react in terms of her personal, professional, social, and political investments. We’ll also look at how understanding what’s at stake can help a writer to further engage readers by developing central conflicts and tensions that help make a story unique and memorable. So if you’re working on a short story, novel, screenplay, theatre play, lyrical essay, memoir or narrative poem and are trying to figure out what’s at stake in your work, join us on March 8. Participation in this workshop is limited to 15, and advance registration is required. To register, send an email to Lisa at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Workshop Fee: €30. This workshop is currently sold out.
