THE SENTENCE IN FICTION:
A Workshop For Fiction Writers
Presented by Alexis De Veaux
This workshop is designed to assist fiction writers in incorporating the idea that the sentence is an important element in building a fictional narrative.
What is the purpose of the opening sentence? How do subsequent sentences reflect its importance? How can we build character and plot and narrative in subsequent sentences? What is the importance of the ending sentence? How do we know when the ending sentence has appeared?
Making use of these and other questions and exercises, this Workshop aims to provide Participants with some tools for realizing the notion that stories are built one sentence at a time. All Participants will be required to submit a brief sample of their work (5 pages) prior to the workshop.
