This July 27th, AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop Brings You: Treasure Ho! Mapping Your Way to Story
You meet your screen with a determined gaze. The blank page stares back. You blink first. Writing is always a challenge, especially so when we’re unsure where to start or where we’ll head next. Discovery writing—or storytelling without an outline—can certainly lead us and our characters to marvelous adventures, but it can, for some, make writing an overwhelming task.
The good news? There’s a map to guide you and your characters to the story you seek—if you’re patient enough to find it before setting off on your writerly quest.
In these sessions, attendees will have the chance to shed their fear of the blank page by developing a fresh narrative concept and applying it to one of the classic plot structure models storytellers have been using for centuries. Then, equipped with a map to lead our characters from their ordinary world and to the treasure they long for, we’ll get granular with our approach, zooming into the scene-by-scene level so the next time we meet the blank page, there’ll be no question of who—or what—will blink first.

At AllWriters’, we strive to bring you the best! Several times a year, we offer a Celebrity Saturday, which brings in a better-known, better-published author to work with you for one intensive day. Celebrity Saturday authors have included Jane Hamilton, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Michael Perry, A. Manette Ansay, Marilyn Taylor, Ellen Kort, and many, many more!
Celebrity Saturdays are a great chance to broaden your knowledge of what it takes to be successful and to learn from writers who are already knee deep in an author’s life. r.r.campbell’s workshop will be held on Saturday, July 27th, 2019. This event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and costs just $95, which includes a lunch catered by Waukesha’s own Café de Art!
