The Creativity of a Narrative Arc with Ivelisse Rodriguez via Zoom
August 2 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree – $124
Outlining and creativity are often seen as diametrical. In writing a story, creativity is not enough. In this workshop, we will learn how to use the traditional narrative arc to outline and write stories. We will identify key points integral to story making, such as the conflict, the climax, and the rising action. In doing so, we will learn to outline our stories while maintaining our creativity.
NB: This class will be taught on Zoom and capped at 15 students.
