Workshops on FanLit Forever

Filed under: FanLit, writing, Writing Craft, Writing Life, Writing Technique — aliceaudrey @ 11:24 am

A while back I asked if anyone would be interested in having me run a workshop in The Workshop board on FanLit Forever.  The response was a resounding “Yeah, sure.”

Despite the fact I am a rank amateur who has never run a workshop in her life, I’ve decided to go for it.  Maybe, with luck, we can talk a published author into coming in and doing it right.

Actually, I’m going to run two at the same time.  I’m calling one “Details” and will focus on wording.  Not grammar or spelling!  We will have to get Pollyanna to run that workshop.  By wording I mean things as far flung as where to put a chapter break, how to handle dialogue tags, showing vs telling etc.

The other I’m calling “Story” and will focus on plotting, characterization, etc.

Hopefully we’ll all get something out of this.  And if not, I’ll chalk it up to a learning experience.

Both workshops will begin this Monday.



  1. Good luck with the workshops!

  2. I am just getting a chance to read this and am very excited you are doing the workshops. Unfortunately, I cannot participate right now. I’ve been working every day this week (except Sunday) and have a full load next week too. The following week, I will be away. I hope you plan on continuing them. This seems like a busy time for many of us so don’t think we’re not interested!

  3. I’m loving the workshops! Thanks for taking the time to put them together. I’m beginning to think I might actually learn something. 🙂
