Workshops are offered to writing groups, at writing conferences and online. Subjects currently available:
Create Writing Magic – an 8-week online program to move you forward on your goals. Using the latest in brain science and tips for overcoming procrastination, this program keeps you moving forward. And don’t we all need that help from time to time?
Unleashing Creativity – an in-person full-day workshop in overcoming creative blocks and getting the creative juices flowing. Writing exercises, discussion and reading included.
The Power of a First Chapter in Fiction or Nonfiction – how you begin matters. From the very first words, you either hook your reader or not. In this program, writers get to rework their opening chapters (if they have a work in progress; if not they work on something new) for greatest impact. Chapter transitions that keep the reader engaged are also discussed. This program is offered as either a 1 day or 2-part (weekend) workshop.
Writing Characters Readers Will Love – This full-day workshop is focused on character development in fiction and includes how to use the physical description of your characters to inject and convey emotion, creating your character’s unique voice and how to effectively handle exposition and backstory elements.
Narrative Arc in Fiction and Nonfiction – a narrative arc is less like a sine curve and more like a roller coaster. In this half-day workshop learn the key elements of the narrative arc and how the arc pulls the reader along the story thread to maximum effect. This is offered either as a 90 minutes workshop or half-day. Writing, reading aloud and discussion is included.
