Join award-winning author and longtime creative writing teacher Ron Rozelle for Story Building, a three-day, in-person writing workshop this spring at The Center for the Arts & Sciences! Slated for March 1-3, the intensive workshop will focus on what makes good stories work, from short stories and novels to memoirs, scripts and nonfiction.
Registration is $100 for Center members and $125 for non-members. REGISTER ONLINE or call us at 979-265-7661.
Beginning with a successful and proven storytelling blueprint, Ron will share the techniques he’s employed in his books, both fiction and nonfiction, and show how to work them into writing projects. Participants will receive clear instruction, including the effective employment of literary elements and how to weave episodes together with a specific overall theme, as well as abundant examples.
Writers will also be invited and encouraged to share their writing plans and experiences, learning from other participants with the common goal of telling a great story. Story Building will be an upbeat, instructive and fun experience for both new writers, longtime writers and everyone in between.
Details: The workshop will meet from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM on Friday & Saturday and 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM on Sunday. There will be a brief lunch break on Friday and Saturday, so participants may bring a sack lunch or leave to pick something up. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
