Class #24

Your Story - Writing About Happenings in Your Life

Roger Kuhns

September 23 & 24 | 9 - 4

Delve into story telling methods - story set up, plot formulation, and character development. But here the characters are real - they are from an event, adventure or lesson in your life that you want to write down to share with family or maybe give a public performance or reading. We will explore dramatic and comedic approaches to writing, methods of achieving story flow and excitement, as well as finding the cliffhanger in your story. It's fun; it's a start. Roger will review participantís initial writings. Together we will focus on working with the experiences to develop the stories. Please bring something to write with (computer, tablet, paper/pen) and items that may help explore your story.
