STORYTELLER’S TOOL BOX

Whether you're writing sci fi, paranormal, coming of age, romance, or memoir, all stories have key elements that make them engaging reads. In this two-part workshop, best-selling author Janis Thomas will take you step by step through these key elements, starting with that spark of an idea and helping you to hone that idea into a workable concept.

We will cover genre, theme, message, structure, character arc, beats, and other tools that will raise your story to the next level. If you are planning to do NaNoWriMo, Storyteller’s Tool Box will give you a leg up, to ensure that you don’t waste a single moment or a single word during your novel-writing journey.
