Out of stock
1 hour workshop with Vashti Hardy on:
Foreshadowing, Clues and Reveals
We’ll consider and analyse the elements we need to think about when considering the set up and pay off within stories. This will include the use of clues, mirroring, reader knowledge versus character knowledge, the use of events, show vs tell in foreshadowing, tone, planting questions and choosing when to answer them, and the frame of your story. I’ll give insights relating to Brightstorm and Wildspark along with other relevant story examples!
