Story-Crafting: Start in the Middle, Work Toward the Edges with Barbara McBride-Smith

Every storyteller who writes his/her own stories knows the importance of structure. Stories tend toward certain shapes, moving through a narrative arc in a linear fashion.   But creativity is rarely linear.  Memories from our lives don’t always come to us in chronological order. Is it possible to begin a story in the middle and work forward and backward? Can techniques such as foreshadowing, flashbacks, in medias ras, and framing give depth or humor or affirmation to a story? This workshop will consider some ideas for polishing our work as story-crafters.
