In this interactive workshop, participants explore and discuss parallel story structures and investigate ways combining different perspectives or time lines deepen the plot, suspense, and mystery. Best-selling author D.M. Pulley shares her experiences weaving historical story threads into present day narratives. Through multiple examples, Pulley demonstrates different techniques to develop resonant story lines and ways to guide the reader along a shifting path. Together, participants outline the advantages and pitfalls of jumping back and forth in time or between characters and determine where best to use this technique in their own work. Sponsored by the Northeast Ohio MFA program.
