Finding the Focus

What's it really about?

Finding the Focus

One of the things people find difficult about the non-fiction writing process is sifting through the tangle of information or memory for the core of the story, then deciding what is needed to tell it properly.

Finding the Focus is designed to help those writing about their life experiences learn how to sift the wheat from the chaff to discover what the story is really about, then to transform their memories into powerful and engaging stories. We’ll be exploring the elements of a story, and how to apply  structure and fiction techniques (including plotting, characterization and setting) to enhance our lived experience.
