Edit: the storymaking process - instructional guide
My MFA thesis exhibition explored atypical narrative contexts in everyday life. As part of my research, though, I also took a writing workshop to learn how to write stories. I needed to learn traditional (typical) narrative in order to explore story in new and innovative ways. Edit - The Storymaking Process is a book I wrote, designed and created to document the editing process of one of the two stories I wrote in my writing workshop. I used information graphics and visual systems of color and shape to adequately document this process. My goal was to present a new way to teach students how to write stories. A strong takeaway for me was the realization that the majority of the writing process is actually editing.
