Keeping the Reader Interested

Master Class with Gabe Habash
Saturday, April 6
1 to 3 p.m.
Project Write Now Studio

Sustaining a reader’s attention for the long haul means developing conflicts and a prose style that keeps them engaged. By analyzing the big-picture conflicts and sentence-level choices made by select writers, we explore the tensions, images, rhythms, and word choices that make stories come alive on the page. Through discussion and generative prompts, we begin to apply those lessons to our own work.
