Saturday April 22: 11:00-11:50 a.m. (Room 2)

Presentation: SYMBOLISM THEORY

A dense, wide reaching but enthusiastic presentation beginning with the foundations of language and flowing into the use of symbolism to achieve deeper meaning through shared reference in narrative structures. Guaranteed to confuse and enlighten students of all levels with deconstructionist emphasis on subconscious symbolic relationships and associative writing. We’ll study how symbols are used and suggest ways to identify and harness both acquired and created symbology to strengthen our work.

 

Friday April 21, 3:00-3:50 p.m. (Room 4)

Saturday April 22, 9:00-9:50 a.m. (Room 3)

Presentation: RECIPE FOR A FACETED BOOK

A class about those elements of narrative fiction that lend depth, value and resonance to writing. Every story has some, the best have many. We’ll learn how to identify which elements to include in your story. Subplots and multiple stories, arcs, settings, themes, novelties, information and more. A little foresight, a touch of research and a clear goal can nurture the muse to bring out the strength of the form.
