Workshop with Leslie-Ann Murray– Finish that story: A generative writing workshop for getting unstuck
4 July 2019 @ 19 h 00 min - 21 h 00 min
About the workshop:
Do you have a lot of unfinished short stories? Do you struggle to write the next scene in your story? Do you struggle to find the right voice, the right tone, the perfect setting in your story? This workshop will provide practical tools for emerging writers to establish their writing practice, so they can stop struggling with incomplete drafts, and start writing. In this generative writing workshop, participants will be given various writing prompts and ten minutes to free write towards that prompt. The writing prompts are not your ordinary writing prompts. They are structured like a story arc, and this method helps emerging writers get “unstuck”.
Writers will learn how to generate ideas for their creative writing through free writing.
Emerging writers will learn how to harness their ideas into an actual story.
Writers will learn the basics of the drafting process, and what makes a story, an actual story.
