WORKSHOP & BUFFET LUNCHEON
Architecture of Long Works in Fiction and Nonfiction
Saturday, April 13, 2013
9am to 1:30pm
Jane Vandenburgh is the author of two novels, the award-winning Failure to Zigzag and The Physics of Sunset. Her nonfiction includes the memoir A Pocket History of Sex in the 20th Century and The Wrong Dog Dream: A True Romance, a memoir recently published by Counterpoint Press.
Based on many years of teaching writing, Jane wrote Architecture of the Novel on the craft of structuring the longer narrative.
From it she will share such tips as:
*The elemental nature of narrative: a story consists of its events, told in scenes
*Placing scenes along the natural arc of the story in an order that provides suspense and mystery
*Drawing characters toward the inevitability of their destinies
*The maps and mechanics of any long work
