Thursday’s Schedule, April 7:
Full Day Workshop with Robert Liparulo
Followed by Writers Café at 7:00 PM
Bestselling author Robert Liparulo will take you step-by-step through structure and character development, plot and setting, voice and viewpoint. By the end of the day, you will have the tools – and motivation – to design, build, and write your story.
“Writing a novel is much like designing a building: the placement of everything has to serve a function; it has to be pleasing, simultaneously unique and familiar; it has to be something people want to return to, talk about, get cozy with. And writing a novel is no less demanding than designing the coolest, most prestigious skyscraper. But how? How do you take that vivid, gotta-get-it-out story in your head and put it in a form that everyone can see, that everyone can appreciate the way you do?”
