I have not attended this workshop yet – but I will soon because I just got accepted yesterday. Yea! It promises to be amazing! Check it out…
One of my very sweet, and possibly delusional friends, mentioned that if I ever get famous enough for Mr. Jenks to
admit claim he’s worked with me, my name would appear below Kurt Vonnegut. That would not be awful! 😉
The Art of the Story with TOM JENKS
The class will meet every day for four days, with a morning workshop and an afternoon seminar focused on craft. For the seminar, there will be reading assignments and study of works by well-known writers. Each participant will have one manuscript workshopped in class and a second manuscript reviewed for an individual conference with Tom. We will study storytelling and the formal elements of fiction, including voice, point of view, characterization, imagery, plot, and theme. Attention will also be given to scene building, sentence making, and the dramatic movement of descriptive writing.
Enrollment is limited to twelve participants. (Acceptance into the class will be based on evaluation of a submitted manuscript.)
