DESCRIPTION

How does one begin a story? What does it mean to begin? What is an ending? What is tension? And how and why does tension rise and fall – or not rise at all? Claire Keegan will also take you through the structure of a paragraph and demonstrate how time, movement and static work (and do not work) in a piece of fiction. Participants will be taken through the structure of a narrative and asked to reconsider time and desire.

This session is suitable for all levels.
