Award winning author David A. Poulsen’s writing workshops will give both beginning and experienced writers useful, easy-to-understand strategies they can use in creating their own stories. The workshop focuses on helping writers create real, believable stories that include all of the elements of good story writing including (and focusing particularly on) character and setting. The workshop content is David’s response to seeing too many stories/novels that focus only on plot, as emerging writers in particular—surrounded by superhero films and video games–try to create an action movie on paper. David will examine those statements we’ve all heard like show, don’t tell and attach real, practical meaning to the words. Then we will take the strategies discussed and put them into practice as you put pen to paper (or fingers to keys).
