    WGT Meeting Rm in Richardson, TX

    Amber Royer– WGT Short Story Plot Development– Writing Clinic, Part 2

    It's time again for the WGT Short Story Plot Development– Writing Clinic, Part 2!

    If you missed Amber Royer on January 18, don't worry, there's still so much we need to learn and a great deal Amber can teach us about plot development. If you participated in Part 1, then you're in for a double dose of her expertise, and you can share what you've learned from practicing what you learned in January. The comic science fiction author has both the desire and the knowledge to teach us how to structure the scene and story level. Her goal is to continue to help writers to understand why different short stories demand other plot formats.

    "I am not a short story writer"– not an excuse to avoid this session. Don't make the mistake of thinking that this clinic won't help you improve your novel or novella. Come on and join us.

    WGT Short Story Plot Development– Writing Clinic, Part 2
    May 17, 2021, from 7 PM to 8:30 PM
    WGT Zoom Meeting Room
    Register here to submit your plotting questions by 11:59 PM on May 16, 2021.

    Amber Royer writes the CHOCOVERSE comic telenovela-style foodie-inspired space opera series. Amber has been teaching creative writing to writers of all genres for over a decade in North Texas for UT Arlington Continuing Education and Writing Workshops Dallas. In the summer, she holds camps and workshops for teen writers. Amber's book, Story Like a Journalist: A Workbook for Novelists, boils down her writing knowledge into an actionable plan involving over 100 worksheets to build a comprehensive story plan.
