February 4, 2017

Creativity - Eric Witchey

Creativity - Eric Witchey

On Saturday, February 4, 2017, Eric Witchey, Award-winning writer and author of Bull’s Labyrinth, will describe and demonstrate the use of conflicted psychology as a driver for story and as an essential part of developing powerful climaxes.

Morning Meeting (9:30-noon)

In the morning, Mr. Witchey will discuss and demonstrate the relationship between the irreconcilable self, emotion-driven scenes, and vertical and horizontal story management.

Free for Willamette Writers Members. Open to all writers.

Afternoon Workshop (1:30-4:30 p.m.)

During the afternoon session, he will guide writers through exercises that reveal, develop, and execute the above concepts in a way that will allow participants to use those techniques in works in progress, new works, or works that have not developed the legs their creators hoped they would. Come and join us for these two fast-paced, fun sessions.
