      EVENT DETAILS
      TIME & PERCEPTION in FICTION w/NANCY REISMAN

      In your stories, novels, and flash fiction, your ability to control and fine tune the time sense of the piece – from the time frame of the story, to the implications of tense and points of telling, to the ways characters and readers experience time – can make the difference between an interesting, promising draft and a fluid, accomplished piece. In this workshop, we’ll explore the temporal in fiction, and the various craft and technical options you might use in representing time and guiding reader perception. We’ll think about architecture and sequencing, narrative decisions, echo and repetition, movement within scenes, real-world elements and temporal markers, and syntactical and sentence level choices, among other possibilities.  Class meets Saturday, September 7, 2019, 1pm-3:30pm.  Cost: $45 General Admission, $40 for current FWR Co-Working members.  To register by check instead of Eventbrite, mail your check and a valid email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting. Need-based partial scholarships available for this workshop. For more information click HERE.
