Storytelling 101 is for both beginning writers and more advanced pros looking for new insights. Award-winning author Vic DiGenti leads writers in three virtual sessions based on popular Novel in A Day workshop designed to provide writers with the tools needed to successfully craft their own novel.

Saturday, August 29          SESSION ONE: Plot, Structure, and Characterization

 

Saturday, September 5       SESSION TWO: Dialogue, Setting, and Writing Scenes

 

Saturday, September 12     SESSION THREE: Beginnings, Middles, and Endings
