Build-A-Book

Member Price: $160 / General: 180
Deadline to Register: August 10, 11:59 PM

So you want to write a book, but you need a plan? Learn how to plot a book chapter by chapter, taking your great idea and turning it into a juicy plot. We’ll access resources from a variety of Arts & Cultural organizations, and observe how ordinary people and places can help you bring your book’s characters to life and become heroes and villains. We’ll study author’s craft using our personal copies of Ralph Fletcher’s Live Writing as our guide to becoming better writers. Our afternoons will be spent writing, conferencing, and sharing with one another, and creating an anthology of excerpts from each of your books.
