Join us for The Sunday Sessions on December 11th at 3pm for a mini workshop with Christine Fletcher on I Couldn't Put It Down! Using Conflict to Hook Your Readers.
"Conflict on every page” is common advice for fiction writers. Does this mean your characters must argue and fight constantly? Not at all. In this workshop, we’ll explore the many flavors of conflict, from the knife-edge tension of silence to the excitement of a full-on battle scene. We’ll discuss how conflict advances plot, reveals character, and raises the stakes, and how its skillful use will keep your readers turning pages well into the wee hours.
Come with questions, a passion for writing, & something to take notes with. These workshops are free & open to the public.
