03/23 Infusing Scenes with Action with Lisa Kessler
Action propels your fiction forward, changing your characters and making your reader keep flipping those pages. In this class we’ll look at different types of “action” from first meetings to fights scenes. We’ll discuss integrating all 5 senses, sentence length variations, and if you bring a scene to class with you, you’ll receive feedback and some ideas to sharpen conflict and make your scene come alive!
Lisa Kessler has published multiple short stories in print anthologies and magazines. Her vampire short story, Immortal Beloved, was a finalist for a Bram Stoker award and has been reprinted in the Dead Souls anthology by Morrigan Books.
