Dr. West’s Laboratory with Ross E. Lockhart
This is a workshop on writing scenes, and how individual scenes can be stitched together to form a story! Ross Lockhart will take up to 12 participants for this extremely insightful and skill-building workshop!
Like Dr. Herbert West’s or Victor Frankenstein’s ghastly resurrections, stories are made up of individual parts, called scenes.
In this workshop, we will read two short scenes (from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and H. P. Lovecraft’s “Herbert West—Reanimator”), discuss how these scenes are connected to the larger story, and write two short scenes based on a generated prompt. Bring something to take notes and write in!
Time: Approx 1 hour
Saturday, October 8th at 1:30 pm
