Sherry Coman

Emotional line and the Sacred Image

with Sherry Coman

In her one hour lecture presentation, Sherry will explain how the emotional core of a writing project is connected to its most central, or sacred image. How to find and preserve that image as an ongoing source of inspiration is a skill that will assist writers on any project.

following the meeting, Sherry will present:

Finding Your Sacred Image

- a one-hour workshop

Participants should bring to the workshop a project that is already in progress. Working with specific prompts about the emotion of the project, writers will have the chance to more carefully isolate what the sacred image is for their story and how it can serve them.

Sherry Coman is a writer, educator and story editor with more than thirty years experience in theatre and film as the author of her own plays, screenplays and fiction and as the consultant on story editing and film production for clients ranging from young new filmmakers, to emerging playwrights and established international film producers. As a playwright, she has been produced in Canada, the US and Great Britain and in 1991 was nominated for the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn prize. Currently a sessional lecturer in film, visual and new media culture at Humber College, and in film and theology at Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of Toronto, she also coaches private clients and runs online courses in writing project development and story editing.
