Live Virtual Workshops For Writers’ Groups

Stacy is available to do live virtual workshops for writers’ groups. Add an educational component to your group’s meetings by hosting one of the below workshops for your members. Email if you’d like to schedule a workshop.

How To Give Your Characters A Strong Backbone – Are your characters strong enough to carry a novel? In this workshop, you’ll learn how to view your characters through an editor’s eyes. By the end of the session, you will know exactly how to flesh out your main characters, deepen their emotions, and strengthen your protagonist’s character arc so that readers will connect with your cast and be riveted to your pages. Fee: $100 per group. Includes live virtual workshop approximately 45 minutes, Q&A session, and PDF workbook that can be distributed to members.

Editing Page Intensive – Get a glimpse inside the mind of a developmental editor and line editor. Several weeks before the presentation, group members will be invited to submit 2 pages each via email. Stacy will draw from the excerpts in her presentation, showing examples of strengths and weaknesses and demonstrating ways to improve the writing through self-editing techniques. Participants will get insight into what the editing process involves and learn how to fix common flaws in their manuscripts so they can save time and money.

Please note that members will not receive personal critiques on their full 2 pages. Snippets from each submission will be pasted into a master document which Stacy will refer to during the presentation. Fee: $125 per group. Includes live virtual workshop approximately 45 minutes, Q&A session, and a PDF copy of the marked-up master document that can be distributed to members.
