    Writing in Scenes


    A critical difference between salable fiction and the almost-but-not-quite-there manuscript is dramatization. Dramatization, for the fiction writer no less than for the playwright, means constructing successful scenes. This workshop will use a combination of lecture, handouts, and brief writing sessions to cover scene construction, effective description within a scene, use of dialogue, different types of scenes, and that eternal problem, exposition. Participants should bring paper and pen or a laptop. Learn how to make your fiction more appealing to readers and editors alike.
