Fiction 2: Action! Writing Scenes of Action & Violence

from 50.00

Our real lives are full of it and film makes it look too easy, but writing action scenes can be some of the most challenging work that we writers must face. How do we use language alone to build a scene of physical engagement? What’s the most truthful and effective way to write a difficult scene of violence, establish a chaotic city setting, or capture the nuances of a busy domestic tableau? In this workshop, we will attack and banish the difficulty of writing action sequences. We will respectfully share and discuss our most troublesome work, and push language to its limits with writing exercises intended to generate new and exciting scenes of action.
