About this Event

Why should you structure your novel before you write it? Unless you're the most avid pantser (a writer who flies by the seat of their pants), you'll know the value of planning out your novel before you tap away at the keyboard. But why does it really matter?

Caroline Leavitt is the New York Times Bestselling and critically acclaimed author of Is This Tomorrow, Pictures of You, Cruel Beautiful World and nine other novels. She also teaches writing to students at Stanford and UCLA and in this Reedsy Live, she'll share one of her most popular lessons, covering topics like:

  • Establishing the premise
  • Finding the story
  • Creating characters with needs and wants
  • Reveals and reversals.

The talk will stream on Facebook Live and will be followed by a Q&A.

Update: this webinar will no longer be streamed on YouTube. However, registrants will receive a link to the replay on YouTube (along with a transcript) later in the week. • Wednesday 23 October 2019 • 12 pm LA • 3 pm New York • 8 pm London
