Reader understanding comes from the ability to recognize patterns and relate them to one another. Revision requires the writer to alter the text to support the reader in this process. This workshop will demonstrate character-based, moment-by-moment revision choices that trigger reader responses and allow them to create meaning from the little black squiggles on a contrasting background.

Award-winning author Eric Witchey will demonstrate executable dramatic textual patterns, show the critical elements on which to focus, reveal the power of changes within the patterns, then demonstrate how the patterns can be built into larger constructs.

Attendees will walk away with a metaphoric magnifying lens to help them examine moment-by-moment choices within scene narrative.

This stand-alone workshop will offer participants 2 hrs of focused instruction, and give writers who are interested in the Fiction Fluency Seminar Series an opportunity to meet Eric and experience his teaching style. Eric will answer questions about the Fiction Fluency Seminar Series after the workshop.
