8N: Right Place Right Time
Limited Capacity seats available

Where time period and setting intersect, we often find the most critical moment in a character's life. At these junctures, we find all of the things that make a successful narrative: conflict rises, tension mounts, decisions are made, and resolutions, ultimately, occur. Through discussion, brainstorming and writing exercises, and examination of published examples in a variety of genres, we will identify these inflection points, and figure out how they can be utilized in our writing. In short, we will be looking for the best possible way to frame our stories using time and place.
