Author Annie Proulx (Brokeback Mountain) said, “You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page.” In this generative workshop for emerging fiction writers, we’ll complete writing exercises to help you shape your story, and discuss the elements of fiction, such as point-of-view, plot, setting, character and dialogue. Over the course of four sessions, we’ll produce new work in a creative and supportive environment.
Scott Lax is a novelist, short story author, essayist, screenwriter, movie producer, playwright and Lecturer in Screenwriting and Creative Writing at the Cleveland Institute of Art. His first novel, The Year That Trembled, was hailed as one of 1998’s “Milestones in Fiction” by The Denver Post. The Midwest Book Review called his second novel, Vengeance Follows, “A minor masterpiece of suspense and human nature.”
