Detail and Description in Short Stories with Brooke Dunnell (DDBD3) Sunday 8th October 2017
Spaces still available for Brooke’s workshop this Sunday
Writing short stories can be a lot of fun. You can let your imagination fly and the possibilities for your characters are endless! Writing a short story differs from writing a novel in several key ways: there is less space to develop characters, less room for lengthy dialogue, and often a greater emphasis on a twist. Therefore, all great writers use sensory language, and other techniques, to provide vivid details to their stories – think of touch, smell, sound and taste.
This workshop will cover tips for selecting details and making vivid descriptions and imagery. According to actor and writer John Hodgman, “specificity is the soul of narrative”.
Find out how to create the precise, well-placed details and evocative descriptions that help bring a story to life.
If you want to make sure readers experience your story as vividly and continually as possible, Brooke Dunnell’s workshop is for you.
