Writing Workshop III: Character is Story - Crafting a Screenplay, with Katie Cokinos at Saugerties Public Library

A Shout Out Saugerties event. Please bring your story ideas to this workshop where we will ask a lot of questions like - plot or character, which is more important?  Neither and/or both is the answer because Structure is Character and Character is Structure.  In this workshop I’ll teach methods that will help us get closer to our characters and ultimately give voice and shape to their stories. Working from the inside out instead of the outside in. Free to public.  Enrollment Limited. Please e-mail info@shoutoutsaugerties.org if you'd like to attend
