Kris Neri will present the next workshop in The Write Stuff writing series, a 2-hour talk: Capturing Great Descriptions: Make Your Setting and Character Description Sparkle. It will be offered on Saturday, September 16, from 10 am – noon, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City, 3845 N Swan St, Silver City, NM.
Award-winning author and writing instructor, Kris Neri, will present a program for writers of fiction, memoir, and creative nonfiction. This workshop will address why including a strong sense of place and rich character descriptions will make your writings come to life and make readers bond with the material. She’ll also look at some of the mistakes she sees in the writings of newer writers. She’ll discuss how to make a static background into an active part of your narration, and how to inject all types of descriptions with perspective, mood, tone, and emotional color. Offered in the class will be two short writing exercises with feedback. Well crafted descriptions elevate the professionalism of your writing. Make yours sparkle!
