     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.
