Reveal: The Art of ‘Showing’

March 27

$60

Date: 27 March 2021

Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm

Description:

What does the adage ‘Show, don’t tell’ really mean? What is its relevance? How do you actually apply it?

This hands-on workshop will lead you to some answers. First, you will examine some textual examples of ‘show’ and ‘tell’ and discuss the significance of each term and when to apply either principle aptly. Next through various exercises, you will experiment with different elements (e.g. word choice, concrete sensorial description, point of view, dialogue) to understand what is ‘telling’ and how to ‘show’.

By the end of the workshop, you will gain a firmer grasp of what is ‘show’ and ‘tell’, thereby enabling you to know better how and when to ‘show’ and/or ‘tell when writing stories.

This workshop will be conducted in-person at the Singapore Book Council.
