Description

This 2-hour workshop with experienced writer, editor and mentor Ken Spillman will help you get set for National Novel Writing Month or could give your existing work-in-progress just the boost it needs.

In the first part of the session, Ken will break down the complex process of fashioning ideas into a story that will truly engage your readers. Ken’s approach to writing is to focus only on what really matters, and he is sure to leave you feeling more confident about tackling any writing project.
