    Layering in Story

    With Kimi Hardesty. An artist adds substance and depth to a painting by adding layers to the canvas. We see the art from different angles with each pass of the brush; the interpretation of the piece expands. The same can be done in narrative writing. We'll deconstruct layers in a portion of a short story written by Mavis Gallant and then reverse the process and build our own scenes, layer by layer. [ALL LEVELS] [ONE-TIME CLASS] Register now for Layering in Story.
