Making a Scene [Susan Meyers]

All Levels. In life, we try to avoid making messes—but stories love disaster. Good writers get characters to “make a scene”—and carry that tension all the way through a story. In this class, we’ll use the format of the “single-scene story” to study the shape and drama of fiction. Reading samples from contemporary authors, you’ll learn how to break apart, study, and write your own effective scenes—whether as stand-alone stories or as part of a longer project.
