About the Event

Join us for this FREE workshop presented by the Mystery Writers of America, Florida Chapter that is open to writers of all genres, from beginners to experienced. During this workshop, 'Planning Your Novel in Ten Easy Steps with Janice Hardy', you’ll learn the fine points of crafting saleable fiction from a professional author.

Writing a novel can be a daunting process, but a little planning can go a long way to making that process easier. Even predetermining a few key turning points in the story can keep writers focused, whether they prefer to outline every scene or pick a story direction and write toward it. In this workshop, writers will learn how to create the critical elements of a novel’s plot, how to use goals, conflicts, and stakes to build a story and develop characters, and how to approach a novel in a way that will make it easier to write and be more marketable to agents, editors, and readers.

Janice Hardy is the award-winning author of the teen fantasy trilogy The Healing Wars, including The Shifter, Blue Fire, and Darkfall from Balzer+Bray/Harper Collins. 

She also writes the Grace Harper series for adults (Starting with Blood Ties) under the name, J.T. Hardy. 

When she's not writing fiction, she runs the popular writing site Fiction University, and has written multiple books on writing, including Understanding Show, Don't Tell (And Really Getting It)Plotting Your Novel: Ideas and Structure, and the Revising Your Novel: First Draft to Finished Draft series.
