April 21st Event: ”Plan Your Novel Like a Pro” with Beth Barany
I’ll be presenting 7 key tips from our Plan Your Novel Like A Pro book on Sunday, April 21, for the Berkeley branch of the California Writers Club, meeting in Oakland. Read on for all the details.
Learn the 7 Keys to Story Planning on April 21st in person—or catch the lecture online later!
In this interactive lecture, we’ll help you brainstorm the steps to create your novel—from character development to plot structure to story themes and world building—so you can start writing your novel with clarity and confidence.
We’ll do bite-sized exercises step-by-step to help you stretch your imagination and get excited about the writing process.
If you have never written a novel, still feel lost on how to go from brilliant idea to The End, or always hit that sagging middle and lose focus, this event will help you dream up exciting ways to torture—er, challenge—your characters all the way to the resolution of the story.
This mini-workshop, “7 Keys to Story Planning,” is a mini-course Beth offers at her online school, The Barany School of Fiction, which she runs with her husband Ezra, who is also a novelist.
Which means: if you can’t make it to our meeting, you can still see the lecture!
Beth will be providing a coupon to all who attend so that they can access the lecture for free at any time. If you can’t make the meeting and would still like to see the lecture, sign up for the course here. Half of the $17 fee will be donated to the Berkeley Branch of the California Writers Club.
Register for the online version of Easter Sunday’s workshop.
Thank you, Beth!
