WRITE THAT STORY!!! The Mechanics of Story

Want to write a book? A short story? A memoir? Are you struggling to get started or to finish your story? Come join this six-week writing course that explores the mechanics of story: plot/structure, character/point of view, description, dialogue, setting, and theme. Through lecture, discussion, and critiquing of participants' work, you will learn how to identify weaknesses in your story and how to fix these issues. You will learn how to drive your plot (yes, memoir does have a plot) forward, using subplots, conflict and pacing through different types of scenes; develop more engaging characters; tighten your story and use the "three C's of ending" to propel your story to its exciting conclusion.
