How to Write Riveting Scenes

The key to any unforgettable work of prose resides in the quality of its scenes. In this class, we’ll look at some of the best scenes ever written and investigate what it takes to write a scene that keeps readers on the edges of their seats. We’ll also do an in-class exercise (or two) to see if we can improve the tension and emotional impact of our own scenes.
