Workshop ~ The Forgotten Discipline: Fiction Craftsmanship ~ Tom Glenn
September 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$20
Writing first-rate fiction requires creativity and craftsmanship, sometimes called technique or style. Creativity is innate; it can be nurtured but not taught. But craftsmanship is a learnable skill required to produce a publishable manuscript. This workshop offers the rudiments of craftsmanship unique to fiction—basic reference materials, formatting, copy editing, and wording and structure, with a primer on the construction of dialogue. The presentation is accompanied by slides, and each participant receives a handout recapping the major points.
