Writing the Magic of Cinema Into Your Stories

Magic of CinemaA One-Day Mount Vernon Writing Seminar with Page Lambert
Includes Continental Breakfast and Catered Luncheon, 8:30 – 4:00
Saturday, February 13, 2016
Good stories rivet us to our seats—just like good movies. But what makes a novel, or a short story, or a memoir riveting? What sleight of hand? What special effect? What does the eye of the camera see that our readers might not see? How can we direct our stories the way legendary directors do? This one-day seminar delves into the film techniques that writers can employ on the page, like the shot, the cut, the sequence, slow motion, fast action, montage, summary.
