This workshop will help writers bridge the gap between the first spark of inspiration and crafting a strong story in your own voice. Ideas come to us, but we are often left not knowing how to move forward. This workshop will help students dive deeper into the development process, trusting that our inspiration will provide us with the map to craft structure, story, and a better understanding of what our characters want.
When: October 5 and October 6: 1-5pm
Where: The Wilma Theater, 265 S. Broad Street
Preparation Required: None
