Author and professor Pedro Ponce will expand on ways to craft verisimilitude by looking closely at examples taken from realism, fantasy, and works that trouble the line between the two.

Writers are often instructed to show and not tell in order to craft convincing stories. But pouring on details can not only slow down narrative pace -- it can even make scenes less convincing because of how much the story is working to appear realistic. This talk will expand on ways to craft verisimilitude by looking closely at examples taken from realism, fantasy, and works that trouble the line between the two.

In partnership with StoryStudio Chicago.

This event will be held live online using Zoom. Once you have registered, check your email the day of the program for a link to join the meeting.
