Objective Correlative: What All Great Poems and Stories share

The objective correlative sets an adequate tale or poem apart from extraordinary one, where the personal becomes universal through the use of objects, setting, and other details to evoke an ineffable emotional response from the reader. It helps your readers fall in love with you. In her presentation, Laura Moe will use classic and contemporary children's literature to demonstrate how authors employ objective correlative. In addition, she will demonstrate how using the objective correlative can help authors amp up the writing at critical scenes to create emotional engagement, use detail to “show don't tell,”  and move the text from abstract to concrete.
