"Scenes That Sizzle" with Lori DeBoer
Sunday, June 22, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Location TBA to registrants

Writing Coach Lori DeBoer shows you all the elements of writing, how to write a dynamic, memorable scene, including what a scene is (and isn’t), when to write a scene (and when not to), how to structure a scene and the importance of purpose. We’ll look at some examples of scenes that work and discuss what makes a scene stall. This workshop is perfect for both fiction and creative nonfiction writers at any level.

This workshop is open and free to members of the Boulder Writers' Workshop. If you're not a member yet, consider becoming a member for as little as $49 a year. Once you have your membership, you need only register via the EventBrite widget at the bottom of the above-linked event page.
