Whether you're just starting to fulfill your secret wish to be a writer, or you're working on your 20th novel, you have in common with all of us the desire to be as good a writer as you can be. To write what you most want to write. To know the thrill and joy of having readers who love your work. So let's start at the beginning, as we all do with every story, and talk about the basics--characters, plot, voice, theme, all of it--in ways that will help and inspire you no matter where you are on your writing path. In this hands-on workshop, we'll dig into the components of storytelling, including action, conflict, settings, beginnings, middles, endings, and much, much more. Bring all the questions you've ever wanted to ask about writing fiction, and discover fresh, new ways to look at your own writing and re-writing. Writers often say, "Nobody understands me the way other writers do." So come spend an exciting and encouraging day with a whole roomful of other writers who know what it feels like to want, more than anything, to be the best writer they can be.
