Learn and work with short story structures and linguistic strategies in this two-day workshop by Kevin Frato.  Topics include effective story structures, useful plot devices, poetic vs. natural dialogue, and combining tone and plot to create an effect.  Participants engage in exercises and we analyze how each others’ efforts appear to fit their goals.

Target group

Anyone already writing in English (or who would like start), as well as those writing in other languages who would like an Anglo-Saxon perspective on narrative and linguistic theory.

Skills needed

Participants should be relatively fluent in spoken and written English.
