Dirty Tricks (Workshop, Northwestern Summer Writers Conference)

  • Wieboldt Hall 339 East Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

Good fiction hinges on the elements of craft, which take time and effort. But some elements of fiction are less mysterious, easier to pick up, and fun to throw in. We'll talk about five useful tricks that generate interesting, dramatically rich scenes, and we'll generate a series of quick, funny pieces that may develop into full stories. We'll also talk about how these tricks can be retrofitted into your existing drafts to make them more exciting.
