A blog about writing and all things story…
I’m very excited to announce that my brother Clark Kohanek’s short film, ‘Good Behavior‘ was named “BEST SHORT FILM” at the TVIFF awards gala celebration last week. Congrats to Clark and his amazing actors Deirdre Lyons & Stephen Butchko
If you’re in the Seattle area this weekend, Clark will be teaching two classes at the Edmond’s writers conference, Oct 4-5; one is
EMOTIONAL BREAKDOWNS—SET UPS AND PAY OFFS (C. Kahonek | I, NF):This workshop is a writing process focused on tracking story movement through emotive transitions and turning points. The method utilizes set ups and pay offs to engineer emotional responses. Participants will learn how to identify these emotional turning points, set them up and ensure they pay off further in the story.
And the other
FEAR IS GOOD (C. Kohanek | I, F): From fairy tale monsters to chainsaw wielding cannibals, zombie kings to vampire cults, Horror has never been more popular. Horror, as a genre, helps society navigate an unrelenting real world of terror, fear and uncertainty, by placing our fears and anxieties between the pages of a book, theater or TV screen. Explore Horror storytelling techniques and monster making devices, utilizing psychology, symbolism and myth to enrich your horror and thriller writing skill set.
Stop by and say hello if you’re around the conference. Let me know you read it here. Ciao! Mindy
