By modeling his own original material, Lou shows students how the 3 C’s (Conflict, Climax and Character) can make any story more interesting and unforgettable! Students will see how these three very important elements play a vital part in many of the classic stories we have all heard or read. Techniques like “Juicy Words” and “Story Stretching” are also incorporated in fun and creative ways. Finally, Lou demonstrates how famous children’s authors use the 3 C’s, Juicy Words and Story Stretching to capture the readers attention. By the end of the workshop, students will come away ready to use all of Lou’s techniques as tools for writing their own original stories.
