Pageturning Fiction Workshop with Joanne Dobson (via Zoom)

This multi-week class series will be taught on Zoom. It will start on Thursday, September 9 and end on October 14 for a total of six Thursdays.

If you’ve ever stayed up ‘til three with a compelling novel, you’ve probably wondered, “How do they do that?” Study the literary techniques of popular genres and learn how to create compelling plots in a unique voice, by harnessing the conflict and tension between sympathetic protagonists and disquieting antagonists. Whether your characters inhabit the extreme world of detection and intrigue, or the everyday life of private agonies and personal satisfactions, your writing can benefit from that special “can’t-put-it-down” magic.

Zoom link will be sent at the time of registration. Please check spam folders and email admin@writerscenter.org with any questions or if it’s not received.

Registration is $320 at www.writerscenter.org/calendar/ptfsept/
