Whose Story Is It?
In crafting true and fictional stories, the most important decision you make is who tells the tale. That means choosing a “point of view.” Discover how changing the narrator and viewpoint lead to entirely different stories — perhaps an even better ones! With tips and examples from her own writing, I will demonstrate the power of point of view as a writing tool. Then, participants have the opportunity to begin drafting stories. What is left? Why, sharing those creations! Duration: 3 hours.
Saturday, October 4, 2014, 9 am – 12 pm at the Sheep River Library in Turner Valley, AB. Sponsored by the Friends of Sheep River Library, the workshop is free, but you must register in advance. Register by phone 403-933-3278 or in person at the library. For more information, go to http://www.sheepriverlibrary.ca
Writing Lives Into Stories
Sometimes, we realize it is time to share what we know about eccentric great grandpa, brave Aunt Mary or our own experiences. Whether you want to publish life-based fiction or record the fascinating events in the life of a special person, discover options. You might choose to approach the story as nonfiction or as fiction, but it is helpful to think about character development and plot. So come to the workshop with ideas and be prepared to experiment. Participants will have the opportunity to begin drafting work and to share stories. Duration 3 hours.
