WRITING POWERFUL SCENES
Good scenes are like great movies in miniature: they draw the reader into a unique reality; create empathy and identification with the characters; reveal compelling desires and insurmountable conflicts; contribute to character growth and theme; and elicit bigger-than-life emotions. Using examples from a variety of recent successful novels and films, this seminar will reveal the essential tools for writing scenes that will insure a positive response to your novel or screenplay.
