Canadian Authors Series: Story Arc Workshop In-Person
In this three-hour workshop, Frances Boyle will help writers navigate the construction of a story, exploring the elements of a strong narative arc that can keep readers engaged from a compelling beginning through to a satisfying end. We will also look at several different story structures as alternatives to the classic arc, and do some brief writing exercises. While the focus will be on short fiction, the workshop should also be useful to those writing a novel.
Frances Boyle is the award-winning author of five books. Her collection, Seeking Shade, published by The Porcupine's Quill, was a finalist for the Danuta Gleed Award for best debut short story collection and fora ReLit Award for best collection from a Canadian independent press. She has also written Tower, a Rapunzel-channeling novella, published by Fish Gotta Swim Editions, and three books of poetry. Originally from the prairies, Frances lives in Ottawa.
This event is presented in partnership with the Canadian Authors Association, Niagara Branch.
