Writing is a special kind of magic and writers can learn a lot from magicians. A magic trick is an intricate narrative with a beginning, middle and end teeming with tension, conflict and point of view, set ups, and pay offs. In this session, we will explore writing through the magician’s lens, understanding the elements of a story as the many moving parts needed to create an entertaining and engaging illusion. You Will Learn: How to see writing through a magician’s lens Identify the practical elements that make up a story (and a good illusion) How to structure a story like an illusionist structures their tricks Enhance your stories with a magician’s twist How to add tension to your stories
