How to Make Your Stories Sizzle workshop, Saturday, February 21, in Mississauga

How to Make Your Stories Sizzle
This is a new workshop full of great insights and tips for all writers.
Saturday, February 21, 2015
10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Unity Church, Unit 8, 3075 Ridgeway Drive, Mississauga, Ontario
(Don’t look for a steeple. Unity Church is a unit in a business mall and looks nothing like a church. Map here.)

This workshop is geared to both beginners and more experienced writers and focuses on 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 so that you can be sure that you'll never write a lifeless scene again. 

We’ll look at both talky scenes and action scenes. We'll show you how to write great dialogue and how to mix it with your narrative so that the interaction between your characters comes alive. Moreover, we'll tackle the most difficult scenes of all ~ 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. 

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get their first book published and launch their careers as authors.
