Austin RWA Virtual Workshop

Are you writing stories that will sell?

If plot is what your characters do and story is why they do it, then structure is the map or framework that gets them where they need to go. A weak framework will leave your characters and your readers floundering. In this two-hour workshop, editor, writer, and story coach Grace Wynter explores story structure: how to create it, how to fix common mistakes, and how to use it to write unforgettable stories.

Who this session is for:

  • Beginning novelists looking to advance their story structuring
  • Professional novelists who’ve hit a wall or need a reboot
  • Novelists in any genre seeking to make their novels more marketable

    Cost: $15 for Austin RWA members, $30 for all other participants

    Time:  9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

September 29-October 16
