Screenwriting Tricks for Authors at San Diego State University Writers Conference

                   Get free Story Structure extras and movie breakdowns

I wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing a three-part Screenwriting Tricks for Authors workshop in January at the upcoming San Diego State University Writers Conference. The conference runs January 22-24, and my workshop will be take place in three one-hour session on Saturday, January 23.

Check out the website and the truly impressive list of agents and editors who will be taking pitches.

Here's the breakdown of my workshop sessions:

     1. Stealing Hollywood: The Three-Act, Eight-Sequence Structure for Novel and Screen

Hollywood's Three-Act, Eight Sequence film structure is so subconsciously ingrained in us that readers and audiences alike (as well as agents and editors!) expect this classic storytelling rhythm, based on setpieces and act climaxes. Learn how to make this easy structure technique a conscious part of your plotting, writing and editing, to write more powerful and more saleable books and scripts.

     2.  Key Story Elements for Novel and Screen, Part 1

In this two-part workshop, we'll learn the key storytelling elements and where they fall in the Three-Act, Eight Sequence structure - act by act, sequence by sequence - no matter what genre or medium you're working in. Includes visual storytelling, tricks of suspense, and mythic story elements.

     3. Key Story Elements for Novel and Screen, Part 2

In this two-part workshop, we'll learn the key storytelling elements and where they fall in the Three-Act, Eight Sequence structure - act by act, sequence by sequence - no matter what genre or medium you're working in. Includes visual storytelling, tricks of suspense, and mythic story elements.


Of course, for anyone who can't attend the workshop, all the information from the workshop and much, much more is in my writing workbooks!
