Scene Building in Novels: Scene by Scene–TPS Workshop

November 20, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

Chances are that the last “unputdownable” novel you read was composed of dynamic, vivid scenes that gripped you from page one and never let go. In this workshop we’ll discuss the power of scenes, analyze their components, and explore traditional and non-traditional ways to keep your reader glued to the page. We’ll also practice techniques for building strong scenes and developing a habit of telling by showing.
