Build a Book—One Chapter at a Time – CLASS FULL

Instructor(s): Tracy Cretelle
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

So you want to write a book, huh? What is your story about? Was there a murder, a kidnapping, an adventure, a romance or some other event? You can plan what will happen before and after that event to create a framework of events and chapters that will support the story arc of the whole book. Learn how to describe actions and details more precisely by observing and recording people and places nearby on our daily walks. You will receive a copy of Ralph Fletcher’s book, Live Writing and learn how Ralph uses language to bring characters and setting to life. Afternoons will be spent writing, sharing, and editing.
