What will Once Upon a Story be about?
A story is the most powerful tool of learning for anyone. As someone rightly said, "The world is shaped by two things: stories told and the memories they leave behind."If you are one of those who always wanted to write and did not know where and how to start, this workshop is for you.
What this workshop will do for you:
* The workshop will bring out the stories out of each participant and strengthen ways to think creatively and strategically.
* It will equip the participants with a host of tools and creative methods that can be used very effectively whenever ones chooses to start writing.
* It will put you together with people who have the same goal.
* This course is being conducted by an established writer and editor.
1) What is creative writing and how to tell a story: This session will not only explore each participants need from the course, it will also examine what each participant is more aligned towards: short story writing, novel writing or biographies or creative non-fiction.
2) The art and craft of short-story writing: this will cover what is the definition of SSW, how to structure a SS and tips to make a short story work. At the end of this session participants are given three ingredients that may not necessarily connect with each other and they have to work in groups to create a story with these ingredients.
3) How to bring writing to life: Techniques to make your writing stand out.
Giving life to characters: Every story has a protagonist. Some stories have more than one protagonist. This session deals with how to breathe life into characters, to make them real, to make your readers see the characters as if they were viewing a film.
5) Writing the dialogues.
Each of the above sessions will necessarily have hands-on exercises
and guidance post the exercise.
