FC-01 Creative Writing Workshop – “ELEMENTS OF STORY: How to Create a Successful Novel and Script”
Before becoming a full-time author, Davis Bunn ran an international consulting group based in Germany and operating throughout Europe. His background is used to form what many consider to be a unique brand of teaching creative writing. Davis combines timeless elements of creative storytelling with requirements of the modern publishing and film worlds. His aim is to assist authors in becoming the best writers they can be, and at the same time attain the goal of successfully entering the commercial world. Considerable time will be given to the vital theme of this year’s conference: how to maintain a balance between the requirements of writing as a profession, and writing in service to God. A full compendium of written resources is part of the teaching process and will be discussed at length in the classes.
