Writing Master Class with Sioux Browning: Action! Page-turning plot construction — Saturday May 10 and Sunday, May 11
UBC MFA Professor and professional screenwriter Sioux Browning comes to Nelson to teach two full-days of intensive writing, with a focus on refining action, character, dialogue and structure in your fiction.
Sioux teaches screenwriting for the optional-residency MFA program at UBC. Based in Cranbrook, Sioux works as a screenwriter for television, as a writer for hire for many genres and writes poetry in her spare time.
The Master Class will be held for two full days on Saturday, May 10 and Sunday, May 11 from 9:00 to 4:00 each day, with breaks for lunch and camaraderie. The class will dive into the guts of making your fiction come alive through a focus on character construction, active characters, effective dialogue and finding the essence of a scene.
“There are many professional and emerging fiction writers in Nelson. We wanted to offer an opportunity for a group to come together to focus on craft,” says author Deryn Collier, who, together with fellow Oxygen board member Wendy Kelly, has helped organized the class. “We wanted a class that would appeal to a broad range of fiction writers, regardless of the genre they write.”
This class is funded in part by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance through the Arts and Heritage Mentoring and Master Class program, a program that assists arts groups in providing instruction to a group of emerging professional artists in a community. This workshop is brought to you by Oxygen Art Centre.
