Parallax is a term used in astronomy. It is when something seems to shift its position because of how you look at it. It is also the key to effective self-editing. This workshop offers four powerful ways to look at your story from different perspectives, thereby shifting your position on the narrative. Writers will learn how to: mark places of narrative energy; survey the narrative real estate of their story; map the emotional terrain; and measure narrative distance. This is a hands-on workshop during which writers will map a few pages of a short story or novel. Writers are then taught how to interpret these maps and markings, as well as how to take the next steps in the revision process.
