Writers Workshops

Write a Blockbuster!

katniss-hunger-games-jennifer-lawrenceSecrets to Successful Modern Fiction, Memoir, & Screenplay

There are elements in common to all blockbusters, regardless of genre, that can be identified and mimicked. This class dissects modern bestsellers like Eat, Pray, Love, The Hunger Games series, or Wild, to discover the repeatable elements that all successful manuscripts have in common. Once you know the elements of a successful story, you can weave them into your work from the very beginning. In class, learn how to analyze successful movies and books on your own, and practice incorporating key elements into opening, hooks, and scenes. The focus is on concrete, descriptive language, action, character motivation, emotion, conflict and how use them to maximum effect. Leave with some new writing skills and the knowledge of how to model your work after that of authors who have been extremely successful. Evon Davis has published a number of books, including Pandora’s Box, a modern-day version of the myth. Optional materials fee is for a workbook.
