How to Make Your Stories Dramatic workshop, Saturday, November 23, Orillia

The Canadian Authors’ Association, Orillia, presents…
“How to Make Your Stories Dramatic”
Saturday, November 23
10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Brewery Bay Food Company, Down by the Bay Room, 117 Mississauga Street East, Orillia, Ontario 
(This is one door east of the main entrance to Brewery Bay Food Company. Map here.)

This workshop is geared to both beginners and more experienced writers.  We’ll look at the most important part of all stories whether fictional or true: the fully dramatized scene.  You'll learn some of the most successful tricks of the trade to make sure that you'll never write a lifeless scene again.

We’ll look at both dialogue and action scenes. You’ll learn how to write great dialogue and how to mix it with your narrative so that the interaction between your characters comes alive. But the most difficult scenes of all are climactic action scenes; such as love scenes, chase scenes and fight scenes. Primarily using fight scenes as our examples, you’ll learn how to ramp up the tension you need for one of these high-octane performances. 

Fee: $38.94 + 13% hst = $44 paid in advance by mail
or $42.48 + 13% hst = $48 if you wait to pay at the door
