Propulsion: How To Keep Your Readers Hooked with Cleyvis Natera
Saturday, July 1st
10 AM – 1 PM PST/ 1 PM – 4 PM EST

In this generative workshop, participants will be guided through a series of craft insights to better understand narrative tension as a critical aspect of propulsion. We will discuss the works of authors such as Mateo Askaripour (Black Buck), Tony Early (Place of Safety), and Alyssa Songsiridej (Little Rabbit) – among others – that illustrate how narrative stakes grounded on character desire, environmental or self-imposed obstacles, and setting can be leveraged as propulsive elements in fiction. Then, we’ll use writing prompts to practice what we’ve learned. By the end of the workshop, writers will have the knowledge to inject propulsion into existing prose or the seeds for a new short story or novel chapter.

This intensive is for all experience levels.

We have one scholarship available for this intensive. Scholarships are conducted through a lottery. If you are interested in submitting your name, please fill out this form.
