Mini Blueprint Your Book, with Susanne Dunlap

Ever wish you could get a quick, bird’s-eye view of the story you’re writing? Or discover the essence of a story you’re just thinking of writing? This brand-new Mini Blueprint™ workshop helps you step back and see your story, wherever you are in the process. No matter your genre—fantasy, historical, mystery, thriller, even memoir—no matter how much or how little you’ve written, the Mini Blueprint can clear the debris away and give you a big picture, wide-angle view of the important elements: character arc, motivations, plot points, crisis… Participants will come armed with their completed worksheets and be live-coached during the workshop on what’s working and what needs more attention. The workshop is led by novelist and Author Accelerator Certified Book Coach, Susanne Dunlap.

Saturday, May 21, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
