Painting a Story with Words

by: 
Bethany

Can writing really be compared to painting? You'd be surprised.

Novelist Elizabeth Wrenn, author of Around the Next Corner, will illustrate how writers make a myriad of choices on every page, and why. From the detail work of a stippling brush (word choice), to the broader strokes of large brushes (plot, character, dialogue, setting), to the frame surrounding it all (beginning, middle, end), writers must use all the tools in their kit.

This hands-on workshop, presented by 40 West Arts and the Lakewood Library, will share practical tips and techniques for more effective writing.

1 p.m. Sunday, June 9
40 West Arts
