Master Emotive Storytelling: How to Combine Showing Action with Effective Telling with Sandy Vaile

Have you heard the show don’t tell adage countless times, yet still aren’t clear how to apply it? The Master Emotive Storytelling workshop is for fiction writers who want to decipher the contradictions in this mantra so they can avoid author intrusion and maximise evocative actions and sensory details. Active showing is one of the fastest ways to improve your writing to a commercial standard and get noticed. Showing creates drama and movement and telling conveys information succinctly and poetically. Both are valid tools and I will help you find a balance between action and brevity that will captivate readers. You’ll have emotive prose in no time!
Outline
This workshop will give you the skills to:
• Understand the difference between showing and telling.
• Discover when to show, and when it’s okay to tell.
• Explore how action can tell the story and engage the reader emotionally.
• Identify and banish information dumps.
• Infuse your story with relevant details and emotive actions.
• Use secondary characters and the antagonist to show.
