Writing Workshop: Keeping Readers on the Edge of Their Seat (June 22, Ottawa)

UPDATE: Unfortunately, I have had to cancel this workshop. I hope to put it on later in the fall.

I’ll be teaching an all-day writing course on creating tension in your writing on June 22 here in Ottawa.

Narrative tension is that element of writing that keeps people turning pages, saying “one more chapter”, and keeps them reading until dawn. But sometimes, we authors find our stories just can’t get up a head of steam, flag in the middle, or the that big pay-off is not so big. Hey, no worries. There are structures, tools and techniques that can help with this without devolving into “formula”.

Part of the funds raised will go to support ChiSeries and Can-Con. Here’s the official blurb:

Narrative tension keeps your readers turning pages and builds to that powerful ending we all want. This full-day workshop will show the techniques to establish, maintain and pay-off tension through characters, setting and conflicts.

Particulars are:

Sunday, June 22, 2014
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
University of Ottawa
Arts Pavilion – Room 509
70 Laurier East, Ottawa, ON

Derek Künsken will be helping me out and keeping me in line.

The cost is $45. Send the payment by Paypal to can.spec.lit@gmail.com. They’ll confirm your registration within 24 hours by email.
