20 Feb Kim Wozencraft: Put It on the Page
A writer’s biggest challenge is making sure the story in her head makes it to the page. We’ll focus on story and craft: the tactics you can use to pull readers into your story and keep them there. Voice, character, plot, dialogue, theme, scene structure, sentence structure, analogy, metaphor, and even acoustics are elemental to crafting a good story, whether it’s short fiction or a novel. We’ll explore how to use these elements to shape your story and make your writing more powerful, impactful, and moving.
Kim Wozencraft has published five novels and is at work on her sixth. Her debut novel, Rush, was made into a feature film starring Jennifer Jason Leigh. Her work has appeared in The Best American Essays, the Los Angles Times, Texas Monthly and numerous literary magazine and anthologies. Kim took her Master of Fine Arts degree at Columbia University, and currently teaches English and writing at SUNY Ulster.
