Masterclass - Action and Dramatic Tension

About this Event

with Bella Pearson and Beverley Birch

Saturday 21st September 2019, 11am – 5pm

Scholastic Offices, London

£195

You’ve had the rejection letters and feedback: ‘Not a lot happens; Doesn’t grip me enough; Not surprising or exciting enough to hold attention in a very competitive market; Not enough happens to sufficiently engage young readers against everything else competing for their attention; Too slow; Not keeping me turning the pages; Good opening, but then everything goes slack …’

But YOU know that your story takes your character on a life-changing journey, full of meaning.

Join Beverley and Bella for a workshop exploring the nature of action and dramatic tension, on finding it in your own story and bringing it effectively to the surface. The course will help you understand how to best sweep your readers into and through the story, gripping them and pulling them through every page.
