Brian Henry Workshop – March 22nd – Sudbury

Creative writing teacher and editor Brian Henry is returning to Sudbury this spring to give a workshop on How to Make Your Stories Dramatic. Hosted by the Sudbury Writers’s Guild the workshop promises to be a popular one.

From Brian’s website – The Quick Brown Fox

This workshop is geared to both beginners and more experienced writers. We’ll look at the most important part of all stories whether fictional or true: the fully dramatized scene. You’ll learn some of the most successful tricks of the trade to make sure that you’ll never write a lifeless scene again.

We’ll look at both dialogue and action scenes. You’ll learn how to write great dialogue and how to mix it with your narrative so that the interaction between your characters comes alive. But the most difficult scenes of all are climactic action scenes; such as love scenes, chase scenes and fight scenes. Primarily using fight scenes as our examples, you’ll learn how to ramp up the tension you need for one of these high-octane performances.

Acclaimed horror writer Mark Leslie (SPOOKY SUDBURY and HAUNTED HAMILTON) attended the November 2013 monthly meeting of the Sudbury Writers’ Guild to “do a talk from a writer’s perspective on EMBRACING ALL OPTIONS – ie, exploring traditional publishing as well as taking advantage of opportunities from platforms like Kobo Writing Life, as well as the other places like Amazon’s KDP, Smashwords, Wattpad, etc.”

His talk was well received and attendees came away with information about a balanced approach to e-publishing, including details regarding print on demand and eBook options.
