Create Page-Turning Tension Workshop

Workshop dates: August 19 – September 16

Registration period begins: July 15
Registration period ends: August 1

Have you been told your character isn’t engaging or that ‘special something’ is missing from your story?

The Create Page-Turning Tension workshop is for women’s fiction writers who want to hook readers and compel them to keep turning pages all the way to the end.
Uncertainty is the ultimate weapon against readers abandoning your story, because it exploits their innate curiosity. Learn what readers need from you to fully commit to a story, so you can squeeze every bit of emotional angst from your characters.
You’ll be writing angst-ridden tension in no time!

This workshop will give you the skills to:

  • Know how to build tension to enhance conflict, pace, and character development.
  • When to release information for the maximum effect.
  • Develop hooks, from killer openings to cliff-hanger endings.
  • Appreciate the role of emotions in creating tension.
  • Identify opportunities to increase uncertainty.
  • Sandy will hold a live chat twice during this workshop. Live chats will be on September 1st & 8th, 2022 from 8:30 to 9:30 PM EST.

This workshop suits beginners to intermediate writers who want to compel readers to keep turning pages all the way to the end.
