Writing Retreat

Join us Saturday, November 2nd for a day dedicated to your writing

The Details

What will we cover?

  • Scene delineation (What is a scene; how can we distinguish one from the next?)
  • Scene drive (What key elements propel a scene for the reader?)
  • Scene structure (What are the structural components and how do they manifest?)
  • Scene effect (What does a scene need to accomplish?)
  • Pacing (How, when, and where can you stretch a scene or speed it up?)
  • Emotional resonance (How can you move the reader emotionally within a scene?)

When will this happen?

We'll meet on November 2nd, from 10:00am to 4:00pm (central time). 

Morning session: 10:00am to 12:00pm
Writing on your own: 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Afternoon session: 2:00pm to 4:00pm

How will it happen?

We'll convene on video chat via Zoom. I'll record the sessions and you'll have access afterwards to re-watch them. Stay home or take some headphones to a coffee shop or library.


The retreat is only $80. Once you've paid the registration fee by clicking on the PayPal or credit card links below, I'll send a confirmation email and a few exemplar scenes for you to read before our meeting. If you have any questions, email me at
