SF Peninsula (In-Person): Workshop: How to Write With Page Turning Tension

March 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

How to Write With Page Turning Tension in novels, stories, and even memoirs is like the connective tissue that allows muscles to attach to bones, and thus flex their might. It’s the heart of the conflict, the backbone of uncertainty, the hallmark of danger. It keeps readers guessing and characters on their toes.

This workshop will introduce writers to four key elements of tension, as well as discuss ways to create tension on the micro and macro levels.

It will help writers master the art of tension on every page and within every element of the story to craft a story your readers can’t put down!
