What one word describes why a reader turns the page? Tension. When revising novels it is crucial to make sure there is enough tension to pull the reader through the story. Tension can be added in many ways and on many levels. This hands-on workshop will address techniques for adding tension through dialogue, setting, plot, and character.
Participants will be asked to bring all or part of a novel in progress with them to the workshop. During the intensive we will work through sections of the novels, employing the techniques discussed. There will be time for sharing and feedback. Participants will feel less stressed about revision when they leave because they’ll know how to dish out tension!
