Save the Cat Writes a Novel with Jessica Brody


Originally created for screenwriters, the Save the Cat! story-structure method provides compelling tips and tricks to make your novel as riveting as a movie—because whether you’re writing a fantasy series, a romance, or the next Great American Novel, every captivating story throughout time (from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie) has the same fifteen essential plot points, or “beats.”  Join novelist Jessica Brody as she demystifies each beat, making it simple to craft your own best seller.

 

 

The Emotional Craft of Fiction: How to Tell the Story Beneath the Surface

The emotional effect of fiction on readers is a craft.  Based on psychological research and study of what makes novels emotionally gripping, this intensive workshop takes participants beyond showing or telling to create an emotional journey for readers—one unseen but nevertheless deeply felt and ultimately unforgettable. This is an intensive, hands-on workshop for serious fiction writers.  Participants should bring a WIP and writing materials.
