I’ve bumped my own work up to a new level and want to share what I've discovered. I’m still all about the character generated story in drama and prose fiction, but work now with an increased understanding of the power of a compelling narrative. Think of compulsion in two ways: the wirter compelled to dig deep within to find a meaningful narrative. The reader or audience member compelled by the narrative to discover deep within themselves echoes of the truths the writer offers up. Compelling narratives operate in two directions: all that separates reader and writer is time.
“Kent Stetson turns an unfailingly patient ear to the work being produced in real-time by the group. The humour keeping it all afloat is the kind that can only be earned by a prolific teacher who is publishing and producing award-winning work of his own. Stetson is the real thing. And this is the course I recommend to you if you've done your dabbling and you're ready to write.”
