Storyboarding Your Novel,
with Rich Marcello


 Saturday, September 15, 2018

10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Thayer Memorial Library, 717 Main Street, Lancaster, Massachusetts


While there are many aspects to writing a novel––story, theme, characterization, scene, paragraph, the sentence––the most important is the story. This workshop will explore a tried and true method for assessing and improving the story using the triangle method, value shifts, and old-fashioned note cards. During the session, we will work on a specific example that puts all of these concepts to use. The session will be interactive, and there will be a chance for all to participate and ask questions.


Rich Marcello  is a poet, songwriter, musician, and writer. He is author of three novels, The Color of HomeThe Big Wide Calm, and the recently released The Beauty of the Fall, all published by Langdon Street Press. Previously, he enjoyed a career as a technology executive, managing several multi-billion dollar businesses for Fortune 500 companies. Faulkner Award winner Mark Spencer praised Rich’s latest novel, writing that “Few novels are as intelligent and relevant as The Beauty of the Fall. Almost none is as eloquent, compelling, heartbreaking, and ultimately, uplifting.”  Marcello has partnered with the Writers’ Collaborative since 2015.
