The Three P’s of Fiction Writing: People, Places, and Problems with Laurie Friedman (online event) In-Person
The job of all fiction writers is to engage their readers by creating stories with unique characters or “people,” in interesting settings or “places,” and give these characters big conflicts or “problems.” Bestselling author Laurie Friedman will guide participants through her unique process of creating people, places, and problems that resonate with readers. This interactive workshop will include an in-class exercise for participants to outline the three P’s of their own stories, plus a question and answer session at the end, and handouts that will be emailed to participants.
