Don't miss the three final workshops in Writing a Novel is not Impossible, author Nadria Tucker's amazing series that breaks down the novel-writing process. As always, the workshops are free to attend, but space is limited and registration is required.
Note: These workshops are independent of each other, so you do not need to have come to the first two in the series to attend one (or all) of these.
The Plot Thickens
Ages 13-18 | Saturday, April 21 • 2-3:30 p.m. • Limit 12 students | Woodrow Hall
Bilbo finds a ring. Alice falls down a rabbit hole. Katniss Everdeen volunteers for her sister. In stories, something always happens. Then, something else happens. And something else. And all of this forms the plot. Come talk plot with Nadria and see what happens next in your story.[Register for The Plot Thickens]
Landscape and SettingAges 13-18 | Saturday, May 26, 2-3:30 p.m. | Limit 12 students | Woodrow Hall
Sometimes the setting of a novel is just where the action takes place. In other novels, the setting operates more like a separate character. In this workshop, Nadria will guide discussion of all the ways to use landscape and setting in your own novel.
He Said, She Said
Ages 13-18 | Saturday, June 30, 2-3:30 p.m. | Limit 12 students | Woodrow Hall
In the first installment of Writing a Novel is not Impossible, Nadria and the workshop participants talked about drawing rich, believable characters. In this final workshop, we'll come full circle and discuss the importance of rich, believable dialogue between characters.
