Event description

Description

Show, Don’t Tell. You’ve heard it a hundred times, but what does this writing mantra mean, and how do you apply it to your work? The workshop will consider the use of exposition and descriptive writing as well as how to reveal character, plot and theme in a manner that evokes feeling and keeps the reader engaged.

What You Will Learn:

  • Identify examples of ‘showing’ and ‘telling’ in writing
  • Apply the principles of ‘scene’ and ‘summary’, and use deep and vivid description, or summarise appropriately, to advance the plot and shape the work
  • Recognise and apply decisions of word choice; point of view; dialogue and other appropriate structural elements to bring out the best in your writing

Who Should Attend: Writers

Organiser: Singapore Book Council Academy
