2018: I update the calendar as new events come up, but it’ll be mostly quiet this year. Must. Write. Words.
Please join me for any of these upcoming events, or let me know if you’d like to have me join you at yours (including by Skype/Facetime/AllApp/Hangouts). We’ll get it on the calendar!

For handouts, click here for the Emotional Reaction Grid, and click here for Ten Tools for Using Fear to Develop Your Characters. For anyone looking for the handouts for “Build the Arc,” please email me (go to the bottom of this page) for presentation notes–that one isn’t lending itself to single-page handouts.
