About the event

Show Don’t Tell

Have you frequently heard the advice “show don’t tell” but are never quite sure how to consistently apply this to your own fiction? Having a firm grasp, or not, on this fundamental aspect of good storytelling can make or break you as a writer.

In this workshop, you will: Learn the differences between the language of showing and that of telling. Learn how to spot telling instead of showing in your own work.

Find out when and where it’s occasionally useful and appropriate to employ some telling.

Get direct practice in transforming snippets of writings from drab tell style to dynamic show

passages leading readers through action and emotions in impactful ways.

Class times

10:30 AM to 4:30 PM with a lunch break 12:30 to 2:00 PM
