“The Story Engine” Monday, Oct. 23 (A Michigan Writers Workshop)

What makes a story move? If you find that your stories often run out of energy and stall, or that your characters and scenes stagnate, join this workshop to focus upon the power source — the “engine” — that drives your story forward. In this interactive FREE workshop, we’ll focus upon the common structural elements that good stories share. Offered by Michigan Writers, in partnership with National Novel Writing Month.

  • If you've ever felt your story or scene running out of steam, you might want to join us for a workshop focused on what gives a story energy and makes it run. Suitable for any story, fiction or nonfiction, and for writers of any experience or skill level. Bring your energy and your writing tools, and let's explore "the story engine"!

  • What makes a story move? If you find that your stories often run out of energy and stall, or that your characters and scenes stagnate, join this workshop to focus upon the power source — the “engine” — that drives your story forward. In this interactive workshop, we’ll focus upon the common structural elements that good stories share. We’ll be using both examples and exercises, so come prepared with the tools you use for writing. This workshop is for writers of all experience and skill levels, and indeed will benefit storytellers of any medium. Whether you’re a new-ish writer creating a new project or an experienced writer looking for a fresh perspective, you’ll learn something new (and maybe have a little fun, too). Workshop host DANIEL STEWART specializes in personal narrative in both memoir and essay. He is also a book designer and occasional radio producer. He and his wife live in Leelanau County. Daniel is a member and one of the directors of Michigan Writers. Thanks to a partnership with National Novel Writing Month (Grand Traverse Region) and the Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities, Michigan Writers is able to offer this workshop for FREE. Because space is limited, however, you'll need to register in advance (see "TIckets" to register). We are meeting in the Groundwork Center conference room at their office at 148 E. Front Street, on the 3rd floor, accessible both by stairs and by elevator (to access the elevator, use the entrance from the alley at the back of the building).
