Jumpstart Your Story [Susan Meyers]
Introductory/Intermediate. Where does the energy for a story really come from? And how can you keep it going, once you’ve started? This class is designed to help you get started—or to recharge—the story you want to tell, whether novel or memoir. We’ll explore the shapes of stories and the narrative tools that make them work. By delving into less frequently studied narrative devices (e.g. momentum, shaping, time, information release) you’ll learn how to shape your own story from beginning to end.
