Creating Narrative Clarity

This seminar will focus on second draft editing techniques to help refine and clarify narratives. This seminar will incorporate four different revision techniques aimed at refining the narrative voice, and telling your story clearly. Each of the 4 exercises will be introduced and explained and gradually help show a seminar attendee the clearest ways to tell their story and refine their narrative.

Exercises will focus on:

  • Identifying Narrative strengths and potential weaknesses
  • Maximizing effective use of POV
  • Clarifying Character – Motivation and Being
  • Effective Flow of Scene and Summary

As these are techniques primarily rooted in revision, attendees will find exercises most useful with a full first draft of a novel or short story ready to edit. Attendees are also welcome to outline or craft a narrative workshop while we work through the exercises.
