In this workshop, we will outline all of the things a writer needs to think about when working on a new story. Learn how Point of View, Verb Tense, Modifiers, Language Use and Literary Devices affect the way that a reader experiences a story. Discover how to develop realistic characters, settings, and plots. Find out how to create a great title for your work every time, and when a story should end.
