Plot Workshops and Talks 2013

Plot workshops and plot book talks are designed to support writers develop their overall story plot lines, deepen the plot at the scene level, and/or develop the thematic significance or overall meaning of their pieces. Typically workshops and talks focus on either or both plot at the overall story level and the Plot Planner tool or plot at the scene level and the Scene Tracker tool and always encompasses the Universal Story.

On demand, special workshops are held for specific writer types, catering to the needs of Mystery Fiction Writers, Children's Book Authors, Memoirists, Screenwriters, and Romance Writers for example. And now, oddly enough, even for trial lawyers, too
