Janice Del Negro will discuss effective story structure and word-craft. Group and individual exercises will focus on structuring stories for telling, the creation of potent visual language, and effective characterizations. Participants will leave having successfully completed concrete tasks related to their own working stories, as well as having acquired tools for future story-crafting.
