Go Ahead…Make a Scene!: The Intersection of Plot and Character

Beth Anderson, Children's Author

The building blocks of narratives, scenes are the portals that take the reader to new places, experientially and emotionally. What is a scene, and why is it key to engaging readers? How do scenes partner with summary and transitions for effective storytelling? This session will explore the basics of scenes, the power of scenes to lift a manuscript out of mediocrity, as well as the challenge of creating scenes in nonfiction and how thinking in scenes can transform the writing process.
