Marcel Theroux’ creative writing workshop held on November 15 in the stunning ballroom at Asthall Manor was greatly enjoyed by our writers.
Here’s what he had to say about storytelling:
- Story is all around us, all the time
- Characters are defined by their relationships
- Story happens when characters want things
- Story unfolds through scenes
- Story is discomfort
- We’re in genre even when we’ re not writing genre fiction
Trying to tempt Marcel into the pool. Sadly he didn’t have his towel!
It was a playful session and an opportunity for our writers to take a break from their own work.
Marcel explaining how the creative genie escapes him sometimes and how to reconnect…
