Free Los Angeles Writing Workshop in Mid-May

I am offering two free writing workshops in the Los Angeles area in May. One is on May 14th in the South Bay. It will take place 2-5pm, and we will be discussing story structure.

The other workshop will take place in Culver City at the Mary Pickford Studio, 8885 Venice Blvd., #102, on May 15th (the following day), also at 2-5pm. It's basically the same workshop, which will focus on story structure.

I am expert in story structure. Right now I am working on an e-book about the subject. Not only will we be examining the traditional three-act structure, but we will be focusing on what your main character wants as the core of story, and how the ways in which this character is thwarted is what creates the story's meat.

We will further be dedicating time to discussing ways in which to flesh out the wants and needs of all of your characters. This is how story progresses: as each character comes into conflict with the one another, plot is born. This conflict is the basis for every scene you write. This is how your main character comes to know the things he needs to do and what will help him change in the end of the story.
