Observational Storytelling with Sarah Bowie
In this online tutorial with writer & cartoonist Sarah Bowie, Sarah
will show how to take ordinary, everyday life and turn it into material
for compelling storytelling! Sarah will explore diff erent ways of
observing – observing ourselves (our moods, thoughts, activities
and conversations); observing others (family members, neighbours,
strangers, wildlife and pets), and observing our environment (our
homes, our local park, the supermarket, the weather); looking at
how to edit these observations and mould them into shape, as
complete short stories in themselves, or springboards for longer fi ction pieces. Suitable for 12 years+.
