Golden Point Award Workshop Series: Malay Short Stories

Description

Fenomena ‘X-Factor’ dalam Pengliran Cerpen

Cerpen hanya sebuah naratif. Penyampaian sebuah cerita yang boleh memikat atau membosankan pembacanya. Mengapa terdapat respon yang berbeza daripada para pembaca? Apa yang menjadikan sebuah cerpen itu istimewa sehingga dapat dianggap sebagai ‘berhak’ menerima pengiktirafan atau dinobatkan sebagai pemenang dalam satu-satu sayembara? Bengkel pendek ini juga menilai keistimewaan-keistimewaan dalam bentuk ‘X-Factor’ yang ada dalam sesebuah cerpen itu. Peserta akan dilazimkan dengan pendekatan draf awal, peta minda, penggunaan penyelidikan dan teori yang sesuai sebelum melakar sebuah cerpen yang lengkap.


X-Factor in Writing Malay Short Stories

“X-Factor in Writing Malay Short Stories” is not a typical "how to" guide. It is more that how a "raw" story was developed through drafts and perception with the comments received and the changes made. The light hearted workshop will take the participants through different stages and process of producing drafts to the eventual work. As such the participants will learn to develop an early draft, application of mind-mapping, the need to do research to the theory application follow by the final changes as the story evolves.

This workshop will be held in Malay.
