Writing: Managing the Middle 2015

November 6, 2015 - November 8, 2015
Tatamagouche NS


Nov 6 – Nov 8, 2015 Fri 7:00 PM – Sun 1:00 PM $370.00
Some writers are great at beginnings, others really land the endings, but most of us just muddle through the middles. Rare is the writer who doesn’t find herself in the weeds, wondering what she’s doing, why she’s doing it, and what reader in their right mind will ever care to read it. Whether you’re in the mushy middle of a novel, contemplating beginning one, or about to start rewriting, this weekend workshop will equip you with tools and writing exercises to navigate your narrative without getting lost in the weeds.

Author and broadcaster Stephanie Domet took up the NaNoWriMo (www.nanowrimo.org) task of writing a novel in a month back in 2003, and is now an award-winning author. In this workshop, she shares her tips, tricks and techniques. Come with your work-in-progress, or start from scratch!
