Explore how to use an imaginary film camera to deepen your story's emotional punch. How does the camera zoom into deep point of view? How are your characters revealed through dialog beats? What does the camera linger on, leaving a ghost image that haunts us? And how do subtle repetitions of sounds and images make the endings of stories resonate?
All shall be revealed in craft talks and exercises in this one-day workshop with Marjorie Hudson , award winning author and teacher, and a popular leader of the Carolinas Writers Conference. Hudson is the author of "Searching for Virginia Dare," now in a new edition from Press 53, and "Accidental Birds of the Carolinas," an Honorable Mention for the prestigious PEN/Hemingway Award for Distinguished First Fiction. She has won fellowships from Hedgebrook, Headlands Center for the Arts, and the North Carolina Arts Council, and she teaches at colleges, arts councils, bookstores, and her own KitchenTable Workshops.
The workshop will be held in Wadesboro (venue to be announced) on Saturday, Nov. 8. Cost is $50. You may register at Paypal here or www.ansoncountywritersclub.org.
