The Next Scene: Driving the Story Forward in Nonfiction

Using established writers’ work, we will explore craft and structure, learning how one scene can build upon another. We’ll tackle elements that also appear in fiction: dialogue, precise description, and narrative arc. Each participant will leave with at least one new scene and a larger vision for his or her project. This class continues discussions begun in the earlier class “You’re Making a Scene,” but does not require it as a prerequisite.
