  • WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: In life, we accept time as a steady, forward-moving state, but you control time when you write. Successful movements in time add interest and depth to your story. Its critical then to decide when to pierce the present with the past, when (or if) to flash forward, and how to keep the present action on track. Well discuss ways to keep the reader oriented, review flashback protocols, examine effective moments to flash forward, and analyze powerful examples in both fiction and nonfiction. Well then try our hands at exercises designed to help you move through time with grace.
