PLOT NOT PLOD

This workshop will delve into what makes a book a page turner an what might make it a snooze. Also discussed will be the importance of first lines, first paragraphs, first pages, along with pacing, tracking time within a story, and killing your darlings.

TURNING AGENT WOES INTO AGENT WOWS

It is said that it is far more difficult to get an agent than to get published. This workshop will explore whether or not you need an agent, and if you do, how best to grab an agent’s attention with your work. It will give hints on where to find agents and how to approach them and stand out in a good way.
