Thursdays, October 13 & 20 // 6-8 PM

Scenes are the building blocks of almost every well-crafted piece of fiction. But how do you know if you've created a scene that's working? How can you tell if your scene is adding something the story needs or wants? How do you structure a scene in way that carries the reader along? This workshop will look at the architecture of scenes, what's essential, and how a scene fits into the overall structure of a larger story or novel. Come ready to write, learn, discuss and play. $40 includes both sessions. Register online. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR // Kris Dinnison learned to read when she was five years old. She grew up reading books nobody else had read and listening to music nobody else had heard of and thinking she was weird, which she kind of was. She spent nearly two decades as a teacher and librarian working with students from kindergarten to graduate school. The bulk of that time she spent teaching High School English while dreaming of becoming a writer. Nowadays, when she’s not writing, she helps run her family’s retail and café businesses. She lives in Spokane, Washington with one husband, one daughter (when said daughter is not living in some foreign country or other), two cats, and a labradoodle named Charlie.
