Transitions are a crucial storytelling device with the power to pique curiosity, drive character development, and build momentum. In this workshop, students will investigate how a variety of writers seamlessly transition between backstory and present action through space breaks, interior monologue, and jump cuts. Students will further hone these skills through in-class writing exercises.
