STARTING A PERSONAL NARRATIVE
What Story Will You Tell?
Writers will learn to identify meaningful small-moment stories from their lives, as source material for personal narratives.
- Plain paper or writer’s notebook
In this visualization game, writers will explore options and choose a stand-out moment for a personal narrative. While this video may be used as a stand alone mini-lesson, it was developed as part of our series, Spill Some Ink with Stone Soup, in honor of our collaborative writing contest with the beloved literary magazine in Fall 2019.
Coming Soon: Design a Novel Weekend Workshop
Join us October 16 & 17 for the Design a Novel Weekend Workshop!
In this Zoom workshop facilitated by author, Naomi Kinsman, we’ll design a solid foundation for your draft. You’ll learn new tools and strategies to strengthen your writing craft skills, be inspired by ideas and writing by creative peers, and walk step-by-step through the process of developing a strong novel concept. You’ll walk away with at least one drafted scene, plus a complete plan to build from this solid foundation through the drafting process.
