From Brilliant Idea to Successful Publication

In this session we’ll explore the process of developing your story, from getting the initial spark, through putting it down on the page, to getting it published and out into world. Whether you are writing a novel, a short story, a memoir, or a personal essay, you’ll come away with inspiration, helpful information, and a clear idea of the path that leads to becoming a published author.
What you will learn:
· How to find story ideas when you need them
· The six essential elements of any good story
· How to approach doing the necessary research
· Strategies for writing the first draft
· Strategies for rewriting process
· Approaches to getting your story published
