Jayme Feary leads July 14 "Writers in the Park" session

The Grand Teton Association invites you to join their Writers in the Park series every second Saturday of the summer months. Writers both serious and casual, working in all areas of interest are welcome. The workshops are free.

Saturday, July 14th, Jayme Feary will lead the workshop with discussion and writing exercises.

We will meet at 9:00am at the flagpole in front of the park Visitors Center in Moose rain or shine. From there we will go to a good place to write and talk together. Bring paper and pen, appropriate outdoor clothing for variable weather conditions and perhaps water and something to sit on. The workshop ends at noon.

Jayme Feary specializes in narrative nonfiction. He is a frequent magazine contributor. The Wyoming Arts Council awarded him a 2011 Fellowship in Creative Nonfiction. He earned an MFA from the University of Montana, where he taught composition and creative nonfiction. He lives in Jackson, Wyoming.

Jayme’s workshop is titled: “Storytelling–The Secret Behind ‘Show, Don’t Tell'”

He says, “Have you ever wondered how to write a great scene that transports readers so deeply into the story that they forget they are reading? The key is the application of the oft-taught ‘Show, Don’t Tell’ rule. But what is this rule really saying? How can we shift our writing from telling to showing? We’ll practice writing a scene and will discuss how we can improve. Educational, practical, and fun.

Hope to see you there.
