OBOA Writing Workshop 2020


A Creative Writing Workshop on writing the BIG SCENE.  In this workshop, you will develop a character sketch and plot and learn about the power of setting up scenes.

Bring a character you are already developing or start fresh with a new being. Using writing prompts and a variety of quirky activities, you will outline the absolutely worst incidents in your character’s life, which will ultimately lead to a happy ending, epiphany, breakthrough, or liberation — the character’s BIG SCENE. 

Beginner and experienced writers welcome.
