Writing Visual Stories

2:00p.m. to 4:00p.m.
Trade School Indy
1125 Brookside Ave
Indianapolis US

Some of the best movies are adapted from books and short stories, but how do you write a story that reads like it was meant to be a film? In this class we'll cover some of the basics of visual storytelling as they apply to writing effective prose. We'll learn how to apply the visual cues and pacing common in movies to our writing. Depending on interest, this class could turn into an ongoing workshop in writing cinematic prose.

Bring one of the following:
a book by a favorite author
a DVD by a favorite director
any item thoughtfully hand made
pet supplies pet supplies for donating to F.A.C.E. low-cost spay and neuter clinic (http://facespayneuter.org/donate/wish-list/)
something else you’d like to offer (email your teacher before class)
to volunteer for this class as a facilitator (email Trade School before class)
