Every Good Writer's Plan with Martine Leavitt

Posted in
Event date: 
6 Nov 2011

Join accomplished Young Adult author Martine Leavitt in a full-day masterclass on plot and structure in longer works of fiction.

John Gardner said, "Though action with no meaning beyond its own brute existence can have no lasting appeal, plot is, or must sooner or later become, the focus of every good writer's plan." This workshop will offer tips on how to make that plan, how to structure a longer work of fiction and set up that structure in those first ten pages - usually all the time you get with that agent or editor.

Date: Sunday, November 6
Time: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
