This Month’s Workshop:

May 9: Jeanette Grey – Size Does Matter: Crafting Fantastic Fiction At Any Length

NOTE: This meeting will be held virtually using Webex. Instructions will be sent via our email loop and Facebook group. The video chat room will open at 1pm to allow time to troubleshoot access, with the business meeting beginning at 1:15

From five page vignettes to eighteen volume epic fantasy series, the power of fiction doesn’t need to be limited by its word count.

In this workshop, we’ll explore the creative freedom that comes from tackling different kinds of stories at different lengths, learn how to set the scope of your plot, and identify the secret sauce that makes stories of any size emotionally resonant.

Armed with these tools, we’ll also discuss marketing, pricing, and the best ways to strategically leverage both shorter and longer works to hook new readers—and keep them as avid fans for life.
