Generative Workshop in Suspense and Momentum [Benjamin Percy]
All Levels | In our two days together, we will break down passages from literature, study panels from comics, and deconstruct clips from film so that we might apply these artful, compulsive techniques to our own stories. There will be generative exercises, brainstorming sessions, and lots of fun, intensive discussion. Students can come to class with a project in mind (whether short story, novel, screenplay, or memoir) or with an eagerness to start something fresh. Either way, they’ll leave with a literary arsenal and several electric ideas at the ready.
This class takes place on Thursday, August 24 from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM, and Friday, August 25 from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
