Say What? Dialogue- A Master Class in Writing Craft

January 15, 2019 @ 7 p.m. EST

Dialogue reveals character, dictates pacing, and dramatizes the relationships between characters. In this 90-minute workshop, you will learn how to use dialogue in fiction and nonfiction to create lively scenes. You will also learn the three different ways of using dialogue (summary, indirect and direct), how dialogue introduces theme and the proper format and style on the page.

 

What a Character! A Master Class in Writing Craft

Feb. 12, 2019 @ 7 p.m. EST

At the end of a book or story, more than any other story element, it’s the characters who remain in our minds. Getting to create memorable characters on the page who feel alive is also one of the greatest joys in writing. In this two-hour master class, we’ll explore how to write engaging, fully-realized characters for both fiction and nonfiction.

 

Hook ’em: Strong Story Beginnings- A Master Class in Writing Craft

Feb. 26, 2019 @ 7 p.m. EST

Whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction, your beginning sets the tone, voice, potential dramatic tension, theme, character, and world of your narrative. Together, we’ll examine first lines, first paragraphs and first pages to see what works (and what doesn’t) in each of them, unpacking craft techniques writers have used to create sparks and hook their readers.

 

Get Some Backbone: Plotting Essentials

March 5, 2019 @ 7 p.m. EST

All stories travel forward in an arc to deliver the characters (and the reader) from one state to another. Join this two-hour master class in craft to discuss hidden layers of plot and the many ways to build events in your story to excite, innovate, and inform.

 

Each workshop is regularly priced at $39 (or $156 for all four); sign up for the Master Class Package at $120 and save $36.
