6M: Keep the Narrative Going: Effective Methods to Provide Context in Fiction [SECTION II] LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

NOTE: THIS IS AN ADDITIONAL SECTION OF THE SAME SESSION OFFERED ON FRIDAY. Do you struggle to offer background information on a character or place without losing narrative momentum? Are you unsure of how to include social, cultural, or political context while keeping your writing engaging and entertaining? This session will focus on that crucial element for creating socially layered, culturally nuanced, but ultimately accessible stories: context. You will be provided with a series of detailed approaches—alongside specific examples—to ensure the context you include in a piece of fiction fits smoothly into the narrative, heightens tension, enriches plot, and deepens characters. You will also be given several take-home exercises as practical tools that can be applied during the drafting and revision of a novel or short story.
