Beyond "Show, Don't Tell": The Visual Aspects of Good Fiction with Adam Schuitema
826michigan is proud to announce Adam Schuitema's "Beyond 'Show, Don't Tell': The Visual Aspects of Good Fiction," an adult writing workshop to benefit our free programming for students ages 6-18. Attendees of this workshop will explore a variety of techniques which will help them create more fully rendered fictional worlds. Time will be spent discussing what we, as writers, can learn from visual arts such as photography and film in order to enhance everything from a story's settings to its characters to its development of scenes.
Adam Schuitema is the author of the short-story collection Freshwater Boys, published by Delphinium Books and distributed by HarperCollins. His work has appeared in numerous magazines, including Glimmer Train, North American Review, TriQuarterly, Black Warrior Review, and Crazyhorse. (www.adamschuitema.com)
