Join author Mindy Friddle for this Author's Toolbox at noon Thursday, May 23:

Make a Scene, Why Don’t You?! Scenes are the building blocks of stories and novels. Mastering scene-writing is a powerful way to develop characters, control pacing, and increase suspense. In this workshop, you will gain a deeper understanding of how you can use scenes (dialogue and action), alongside summary (description and reflection), to build stories and novels that have dramatic power and emotional impact.

Friddle is author of the novel, Secret Keepers, (winner of the Willie Morris Award for Southern Fiction). The Garden Angel, her first novel and SIBA bestseller, was selected for Barnes & Noble’s Discover Great New Writers. The South Carolina Arts Commission awarded Friddle a prose fellowship, and she has twice won the state’s Fiction Prize. Her stories and essays have appeared in numerous journals. She holds an MFA from Warren Wilson and lives on Edisto Island, South Carolina.

NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS FROM NOON TO 1 P.M.
