Today, most people have grown up watching movies, videos, and TV.  In order to compete for their attention, we have to write visually so the reader can enter the scene and live it vicariously through the main characters' POVs. We cannot assume our potential readers can imagine scenes, gestures, and catch the idioms because we exist in a digital world where everything is visually provided for us.  Our words have to become the camera that takes them not only into the scene but into the mind and emotions of our protagonists and antagonists.  In a hands-on lesson, we will learn how to write more visually.

Bring your laptop or pen and paper and join in on the fun!
