Tall Tales


Transform Your Writing

Submitted Jan 14, 2016

A workshop on story and character creation designed to make your written stories unforgettable


This is a session that will cover the definition of stories, the universal story structure, and several key considerations that go into making a story that will resonate with an audience. Rather than write a story in the workshop, we’ll discover tools that you can use anytime on your own. Fiction AND non-fiction writers welcome.


None– just an enthusiasm for writing
