Author Page Lambert grew up in the Colorado mountains, where she fell in love with harebells, wild onions, and gangly ponderosas. In her teens, she courted the North Platte River, cottonwood trees, horses and frogs. She’s been “writing nature” since the mid-80s, when she moved to a small ranch in the Black Hills of Wyoming. A presenter of over 260 seminars, workshops, and conferences, in 2015 she designed and began teaching “The Writing Life,” a foundation course for the MLA Program in Creative Writing at the University of Denver’s University College.

CRAFTING THE READER'S EXPERIENCE
A close look at controlling literary time and space.
A few years ago, we explored the use of cinematic techniques in our writing. A portion of that seminar was spent with Beryl Markham’s short story, “The Splendid Outcast.”
During the October 7th seminar, we will delve even more closely into this classic story, exploring line-by-line the dynamics of literary time and space. We will look at summary versus scene. We will note where and when the reader’s attention is focused, and why. We will discover how close attention to these elements contributes to momentum, pacing, and rising action. We will look at motif and symbolism.
In the afternoon, we will apply what we have learned to a few pages of our own writing, analyzing how we can better craft our own stories using these critical literary devices.
