About the workshop:
Start fast! Keep it humming. End with authority. Polish, correct, and tighten the prose. Learn how to rewrite your story, whether fiction or nonfiction, so it entices, captivates, and delights readers. This course will explore the dimensions of your story and push them to the limits so you get the most from your premise and your readers get compelling experiences.

No slackers! This is a highly interactive class that depends on commitment and participation.
Lesson 1 Breaking the Chains and Going Bigger. Getting out of your own way.
Lesson 2 Making Your Tale Epic. Premise, character, and story arc.
Lesson 3 Power Positions – Story Bites Reader. Focus, friends and real requirements. Attention must be paid – from page one.
Lesson 4 Pyramid Power. Characters have needs, too. And so do readers.
Lesson 5 Twists and Turns That Will Leave a Mark. What’s the worst that can happen?
Lesson 6 Shocking Revelations. First, surprise yourself.
Lesson 7 Excruciating Details. Senses, settings, and special effects. Conflict, oh yeah.
