This workshop will challenge writers to show more and tell less. Several writing techniques—incorporating imagery, developing and deleting scenes, using strong verbs, reducing adjectives and adverbs, writing in active voice, eliminating ‘banned’ words—intertwine to make this possible. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, this informative and interactive seminar will help hone these self-editing skills and equip you to infuse your story with its “showing” power.
