Writing Cinematically

Presented by The Writer's Center at The Writer's Center

Writing cinematically is a way for your work to come to life and get noticed. Great fiction and nonfiction borrow much from their film counterparts, mainly through the use of strong dramatic scenes, memorable visuals, and powerful dialogue. In this workshop we'll explore the elements of writing cinematic scenes ? how to lay out exposition and avoid useless scenes that flatten the dramatic arc ? examine strategies for writing more visual prose, and discuss techniques for crafting dialogue that reveals character, adds dimension, advances plot, and makes your writing come alive. Here's an opportunity to advance your writing to the point that the reader can see it and hear it.
