Special 4-Hour Event! Developing Theme And Voice with Stant Litore

Aug 20, 2022 — 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Let’s talk about how to sharpen your story’s emotional intensity and make it unforgettable. Theme is your answer to the question “why does this story matter?” Why does your story matter to each of your characters and why does it matter to you? If you can define the answer to that question — and write the answer into every scene — you’ll have a story that will matter to readers, too. This is key to unlocking the unique voices of your fictional characters, solving the saggy middle (and other plot issues!), and sticking the landing at the end. You’ll leave this workshop with practical tools and techniques for doing so.
Stant Litore is the prolific author of the eight Litore Toolkits for Writers books and the author of numerous fiction books such as The Zombie Bible series, the Dakota Raptor series, and the Ansible series just to name a few.
Join us for a four-hour intensive workshop with a seasoned writer, speaker, and fanatic enthusiast of the craft of writing fiction, for only $20!
This will be a Zoom event and will not be recorded so make sure you have your notebook or second screen at the ready!
