Master Class: Advanced Story Engineering

Sometimes the conventional wisdom of storytelling - the core competencies and elements and skills and story physics that conspire to shape our stories -can feel like a generic pile of theory and standards. It's like reading about how to do something few others can do... nothing clarifies those principles quite like being alone on the wire without a net, applying those theories and standards to your own work, using tools and parameters that allow you to assess how closely you are truly abiding by the principles (narrative forces that result in reader response)... or not. This workshop will offer an interactive experience that uses your story as an unflinching window into craft, as its own case study, exposing strengths and weaknesses through an enlightened understanding of what resulted in either, and where to go from there using your newly empowered understanding. 

NOTE:  There is no additional fee for this class, but class size is limited, and the workshop is intended and designed for experienced writers, who have published (either self or traditionally) their work, or failing that, to at least have finished manuscripts which have been submitted to publishing houses previously.  Familiarity with Larry's "StoryFix" books/seminars/methods is also preferred.  

Sign up at the door on Sunday morning prior to class, and bring a copy of your previously published book or manuscript- if there are more attendees than seats, preference will be given to published authors, and then those with finished manuscripts (seriously, bring the book/manuscript-  our poor volunteer is not allowed to take your word for it).
