Writing Workshop Topics


Story Lessons from Hollywood - An overview of lessons from art history, screenwriting, acting, directing and how each of these subjects helped me — and can help other writers — craft better stories

Conquering the Novel - Many writers want to write a novel, but they are daunted by how to conquer something so long and unwieldy. This workshop will help writers develop a plan for writing and FINISHING their novel

Narrating Fact: Historical Fiction - Overview of the issues specifically facing Historical Fiction writers: how to organize research, questions of artistic license vs. “fact”, avoiding stilted dialogue while being true to the time period, etc

Acting for Writers - Breaking down lessons from acting to help writers create better dialogue, character action, motivations, and stories. Perfect for any writer who wants to go deeper into character, but who does not want to study acting/get up on stage

The Art of Writing - Lessons from Art and Art History. How the visual arts can teach all of us to tell better stories

Writing with Research - Delves deep into the issues surrounding research — historical or any research — involved in writing fiction or non-fiction. How to organize, choose sources, what to cut to keep the story moving, etc
