The Creativity of a Narrative Arc

September 28 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$150

A Master Class with Ivelisse Rodriguez

 

Outlining and creativity are often seen as diametrical. In writing a story, creativity isn’t enough, there has to be a certain structure in place to hold your story up. In this workshop, we’ll learn how to use the traditional narrative arc to outline and write stories. We’ll identify key points integral to story making, such as the conflict, the climax, and the rising action. In doing so, we’ll learn to outline our stories while maintaining our creativity.

 

Ivelisse Rodriguez’s short story collection Love War Stories (Feminist Press, 2018) is a 2019 PEN/Faulkner finalist and a 2018 Foreword Reviews INDIES finalist. She earned an MFA from Emerson College and a Ph.D. in English-creative writing from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

 

Saturday, September 28, 10am–1pm

Non-member $150; Member $125; Student $ 75

(Student enrollees, please present your student ID on the class date.)

Ivelisse will be reading at the Parabola Community Reading Series on Fri, Sept 27 from 7-9pm along with Cyra Dumitru and students from the University of the Incarnate Word. We hope you can join us!
