Plotting – The Devious Art of Plotting Your Novel
February 17th 2018

In this workshop you will discover how plots are driven by the wilful or unconscious desires of the protagonists and that plot and character are two sides of the same coin: that the deepest desires and personality traits of the major characters may only be unravelled through the exigencies of the plot. More details coming soon.


Character – Creating Great Fictional Characters
March 24th 2018

Fictional characters must possess sufficient strength of character to handle difficult dilemmas. In other words — characters must be up to the plot. At this workshop you will learn the craft of originating authentic characters to inhabit your story. More details coming soon.


Dialogue – Writing Dramatic Dialogue
May 19th 2018

Sometimes it is difficult for emerging writers to know when to employ dialogue instead of narrative (and vice versa) and even more difficult for them to make their dialogue appropriate and authentic. At this workshop you will learn the craft of writing realistic exchanges between your characters. More details coming soon.


Exposition – Show Don’t Tell: Handling Exposition Backstory and POV
July 22nd 2018

This workshop will demonstrate how any writer can master the technique of revealing exposition and employing backstory to provide an authentic, three-dimensional feeling to the story. More details coming soon.
