This workshop will teach writers how to build a StoryZone Board and create a visual tool to keep thoughts and ideas about their story organized and top of mind. Visualization helps open writers to ideas that have been locked away. The Board can be used for both fiction and nonfiction, and participants will see examples including a brief look at the first Harry Potter book.
This hands-on workshop will be interactive, allowing writers, if they wish, to work on a mockup of their story that can be transferred to a larger board later. Some may prefer to just listen and take notes. Participants will need a few supplies to get started: sticky notes, pen/fine point marker/pencil, scissors, tape, five or six sheets of blank paper. They’ll also need some space to work, if possible. Workshop topics include the “why” and how, further supplies needed, how to make it work for different types of stories, and ways writers can use it to develop their stories.
The StoryZone Board engages other parts of the imagination and creates a fun way for writers to delve deeper into their stories. Let’s get diving!
