FROM THE BLANK PAGE TO PUBLISHING: STORY + MEMOIR WRITING
February 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm PST
We will start this eight-week course by looking at how to use memories and real-life events to do the world building necessary for creating stories or memoirs. Next, we’ll take a look at how to build characters from life, first as they show up in scenes. Then we’ll look into their interior worlds, into the subtext that helps explain their choices. Finally, we’ll look at publishing in today’s world.
We’ll start with how to summarize a story in a premise and how to create an author bio. Then we’ll discuss choices in publishing and how to approach traditional publishers and how to self-publish.
