Telling isn't always a bad thing. There are ways to share information without using an info dump or using cliches. And there are ways to show the action by describing what the character is experiencing. Learn how to use both showing and telling without boring the reader or throwing them out of the story.
  • Using metaphors to add description
  • Determining the best time to show a detail and when to tell
  • How to connect with your reader by how you describe the setting and the character's actions.
Class Format
Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.

The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
