Four days of challenging (and fun) writing that will build on, expand and rekindle your narrative skills. Work on your own stories, moving from arc to storyboard to crafting compelling scenes and enfolding exposition. You will get hands-on editing and individual attention from award-winning narrative journalism Lauren Kessler. Open to those who’ve participated in the fjum TransAtlantic Storytelling summer school sessions in Seattle or Portland, or the storytelling I workshops at fjum.
Note: This Workshop is open to those who’ve participated in the fjum-seminar „Storytelling I: From News to Narrative“ or to those who’ve participated in the fjum_storytelling summerschool in Portland or Seattle.
