The trajectory of the workshop includes Suspencing the Stone; The On-Ramp to the Fast Lane; Life in the Fast Lane; Speeding up in the Fast Lane; and Running on Empty. The development of suspense involves, and the workshop studies, the key elements of language, character, action, and setting, and how they merge in traffic.Please bring your weapon of choice, be it a laptop or pen-and-paper, and be prepared to write and rework passages in different ways to reveal what can be done to enhance, and artfully mete and control, suspense.
