Creative Writing Workshop: Unstuck your Story: 2023-06-28

Wednesday, June 28, 2023 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
Burnaby, Bennett Library, Rm 7200

This workshop is in the past and registrations are unavailable.

All times are Pacific Time Zone (Vancouver, BC, Canada).

Are you stuck in the middle of writing your novel/screenplay? Or are you not even sure how to get started? SLC’s Writing Services Coordinator and serial story plotter Hermine Chan will discuss techniques to beat your writer's block by structuring your story based on your protagonist’s external goal and internal need, the lie that your character believes in, and the belief system that comes under challenge. She will also discuss an adapted version of the 7 Tentpole Beats of screenwriting and how to use them as a story engine to drive your story forward. This workshop is 1 hour long, but you're very welcome to stay for some bonus writing time. Please bring your favourite writing instruments! 

Includes optional bonus writing time from 12:30PM-1PM.
