In addition to my scheduled lectures and workshops, the following can be brought to your writing conference, association, group, or event.
- Craft of Writing Lectures: Strengthen your skills in a particular aspect of the craft of writing in these 1.5 hour workshops (also available in lecture format). Topics include: Shaping your story through plot turning points; Connecting the reader to your protagonist; What belongs in your opening pages; and Creating compelling characters. A full listing is available by request – please contact me through the form below.
- Story Creation Workshops: Join me for this 3 hour workshop where we will use storyboard techniques to give shape to your story idea or novel. Do you know what your ACT I climax is? How does your story change at the mid-point? Whether you’re new to writing or have already been published, this workshop will help you map out a more focused and engaging plot.
- Revision Workshop: Learn how to transform your rough draft into a compelling and well-crafted novel through personalized feedback in a series of hands-on revision exercises. This workshop is available using a broad scope in a large group setting or in small groups for a more intensive experience.
- Writing workshops for teens and pre-teens: I have a range of topics suitable for elementary, middle school, and high school kids, including story and character creation. I’m happy to come to your school, public library, or other event, and I offer reduced rates for kids’ programs.
