This workshop will teach you how to use the elements of fiction most effectively. We will deal with the following: defining your theme so that it drives your work, creating truly dimensional protagonists and antagonists, using secondary characters effectively, making setting an integral part of your story, establishing plot points and developing sub-plots to support your principal plot line. The workshop will also discuss solutions to challenges that you, as emerging writers, are facing. Most importantly, we'll have fun.
Special thanks to Mystery Writers Ink for helping make these events possible.
