22. Working with Negative Space in Fiction *SOLD OUT*
September 27, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
*THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT*
Award-winning novelist and professor of creative writing at UBC, Annabel Lyon leads this class. Borrowing from other artistic genres, the class looks at how the idea of negative space applies in prose fiction. With lecture and shared discussion of a reading, Annabel explains concepts of subtext, silence, and what goes unspoken in dialogue, showing how omission, inflection, and absence can speak louder than words. Experimenting through two writing assignments powered by what’s not there, participants will start to feel the power of the negative space in fiction.
