Three Rivers Romance Writers January Workshop:
The Four Types of Scenes
Dates: January 3 – January 31, 2018
Price: TRRW Members – $15
RWA Members – $25
Non-RWA Members – $35
Instructor: Lindsay Schopfer
Every story is made up of different types of scenes, each one requiring a different skill-set from the author to write effectively. Students of all genres will benefit from this four-part course designed to teach writers what the unique benefits and requirements are for each type of scene. Subjects covered will include setting description, dialogue, internal monologue, and action.
Each course consists of four live video presentations presented live and online on Wednesdays (Jan. 3, Jan. 10, Jan. 17, Jan. 24, 2018) at 5:00 p.m. PT (8:00 p.m. ET), along with the recordings of each class. These recorded videos are then posted to a private page where students can review them or watch any of the classes that they missed.
