Sandra Scofield - The Heart of Narrative: The Scene

  • December 21, 2023
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM



The scene is the most vivid, immediate part of story, the place where the reader is most emotionally involved, the part that leaves the reader with a memory of the action. This class will review essential concepts about scene, with the intention of building writing muscle that will improve and sustain narrative writing. We will interrogate a short novel as a model.

Sandra Scofield is the author of twelve books, including fiction, creative nonfiction, and craft. She has taught for the Iowa Summer Writing Festival since 1993, and Lasell University's Solstice MFA Program since its 2006 inception. She is also an avid painter, traveler, and grandmother. Recently she opened the Pandora's box of her accumulated "starts" and "outlines" and "ideas" and hopes she can write really fast! Her new novel, Little Ships, will be published in January 2024.
