WRITING SCENES: The Backbone Of Memoir
 Monday, June 11, 10:00-14:00  
 
 A workshop with Jennifer Lang
“A scene is like a single member of a family – it is loved for its own individuality – but its greatest power is its contribution to the larger group.” ~ Raymond Obstfeld, Novelist’s Essential Guide to Crafting Scenes
 
This workshop is suitable for anyone contemplating, intending or already in the process of writing a memoir or novel. We will delve into the nuts and bolts of scenes—what they entail, why they’re important, how to construct them. We’ll read and study scenes from works by Ann Hood, Kerry Corrigan, and Ann Packer, as well as do writing prompts to help us understand when and how to use scene in our own writing.
 
If you gravitate toward fiction, you’re already aware of scenes because that’s how stories are pieced together. A short story might be comprised of one scene, a novel of one or more scenes per chapter. The larger story arc of a novel or memoir is made up of many smaller beginning-middle-end stories strung together in scenes. In order for your memoir to read like a page-turning novel, you need to grasp the fictional elements of scene.
 This workshop is suitable for writers of all genres. 
 
 Bio: American born, French by marriage, Israeli by choice, Jennifer writes mostly about her divided self.  Her essays have appeared in Under the Sun, Assay, Ascent, The Coachella Review, Hippocampus Magazine, and Full Grown People. Honors include Pushcart Prize and Best American Essays nominations and finalist in 2017 Crab Orchard Review's Literary Nonfiction Contest. Find her at http://israelwritersalon.com and follow her @JenLangWrites as she writes her first memoir.
 
 Place: AACI,  94A Allenby Street, Tel Aviv 
 Cost:  NIS 290
 
 Registration: email jennifer@langonline.com for details
 
 Lunch: We'll break for 25 minutes. Either bring your own or pick something up, sit inside or outside.
 
Cancellation policy: If you cancel within a week before the workshop and your place cannot be filled, you will be responsible to pay the full cost of the workshop.
