Details about what happened to your characters before your story's inciting incident are important, but you can't just info dump the facts. So how do we integrate it? In this workshop, you will learn tricks to smoothly apply exposition, rules, and memories, all while keeping your story active. This workshop will include a short craft lesson, discussion of readings, generative exercises, and an opportunity to ask questions and share your writing out loud.

With cross-genre readings from authors like TJ Klune, Quiara Alergia Hudes, and Martyna Majok, writers at all levels and of all genres are sure to walk away with easily applicable approaches to exposition.

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
