Seven Bridges Writers’ Collaborative Offering Two Workshops in Lancaster
The Seven Bridge Writers’ Collaborative has announced several upcoming workshops.
“Writing Effective Transitions, Part 1,” is planned for Saturday, Jan. 19, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Thayer Memorial Library, 717 Main St., Lancaster.
Writing graceful transitions is an art as well as a craft. Using examples from literature, the program, led by Paula Castner, will look at how writers effectively use white space, words, phrases, sentences, paragraphing, and punctuation to signal changes of the world of the story, including shifts of time, location, point of view, character, mood, tone, emotion and pacing. Part 1 of the workshop is free and open to writers working at all levels. For more information, email 7bridgewriter firstname.lastname@example.org , or visit https://sevenbridge.org .
“Writing Effective Transitions, Part II,” also led by Castner, is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 26, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., also at Thayer Memorial Library.
Those who attend will practice the skills learned from the previous workshop, using their own in-progress manuscripts. Bring a short-story draft or novel excerpt. The fee for this workshop is $40, and pre-registration is required at https://sevenbridge.org/ seven-bridge-sessions/intensives/ gettingfromheretothere.
Registration is open for a new class being offered in 2019: “Turning Memories into Memoir.” It is a six-week course exploring how to get at truth in a story and make it come alive.
The class has a size limit and is fee-based. Visit https://sevenbridge.org/ seven-bridge-sessions/classes/turning-memories-into-memoir.
