Making a Scene [Becky Mandelbaum]

CLASS UPDATE: Date and Time for this class have been updated from the print catalog.

Intermediate/Advanced | The scene is one of the smallest units of storytelling, serving as a building block for short stories, novels, and memoirs alike. In this course, we’ll explore how to start and end a scene, what a scene should do, and whether a scene should exist in the first place. We’ll look at how elements like narrative arc, tension, character development, setting, and dialogue relate to scene-building. Expect to submit one short scene for workshop.
