  • Workshop 6: Making Believe: How to Convince a Reader that a Story Really Happened

    Fairmont Chateau Whistler
    October 17, 2015 | 11:00 am – 1:00 pm


    with Michael Winter

    This creative writing workshop will encourage participants to write from experience, and to make that experience interesting to the reader. We will examine how a good writer convinces a reader that what he or she is reading really happened even though we, the writers, know it’s a blend of autobiography, invention, memory, overheard story, and collage. So often a story is interesting not for its content, but for its style—how a thing is said rather that what is said. Learn the technical skills a good fiction writer needs in order to make a story interesting and believable.
