Writing Fighting: Physical Conflict in Narrative

  • Lighthouse Writers 1515 Race Street Denver, CO, 80206 United States (map)

Maybe you’re a peaceable person, but your characters aren’t. How do you write a fight scene so it feels real? How do you keep your readers engaged, even as you're killing/bashing/bruising their darlings? In this class, we’ll explore physicality and combat in narrative, crucial elements of any good (or bad) fight, characterization through fighting, fight scene no-nos, and more.
