How do writers construct vivid, complex, and engrossing scenes set in the most humble and universal of locales? How can you breathe life and action into a setting that is essentially static, like a kitchen?
Join award-winning author David Laskin on Saturday, June 8 for a three-hour morning workshop inspired by his friendship with writer, Ivan Doig. Doig’s work tells the stories of ordinary people struggling to eke out a living in gloriously harsh landscapes. Inevitably, a lot of the action takes place around simple locations, like a kitchen table. How did Doig avoid the pitfalls of cliché and predictability in these accustomed and usual places? Laskin will share decades of personal experiences with Ivan Doig and offer professional tools and tricks to bring spark to your narratives. Open to writers of all genres and all levels.
