Writing Under The Influence | A. R. Corwin: "The Subtle Art of Exposition and Subtext"
6PM MONDAY, MARCH 27
Join us for a series of in-person writing workshops hosted by Changing Hands Bookstore on the fourth Monday of every month.
This month instructor A. R. Corwin, a writing instructor at ASU and Phoenix College, presents "The Subtle Art of Exposition and Subtext."
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
All stories need some exposition, but hitting the sweet spot—where your audience understands just enough that they want to read/see more, but not so much that they get bored—takes practice." Attendees will enjoy a brief interactive lecture on exposition and subtext, and then dive into a fun writing exercise to practice what they've learned. The workshop ends with sharing as a group, "where attendees will guess each other’s scenarios, providing everyone with some immediate feedback on your use of exposition and subtext. Storytellers of all mediums (novelists, playwrights, and screenwriters) will benefit from this workshop!
