Instructor: Jodi Henley. Got character? No plot? Can't figure out what happens next or why the middle is blank and the beginning doesn't work? Use organic pre-thinking and your own personal structures to create the story that is right for both your characters and you. Covers core events, emotional understructures, the transformational arc and how to find missing pieces. There are no templates, and nothing here is one-size fits all. Everything is written in plain-English and designed to be both practical and hands-on. Because of the structure of this multi-layered approach, please come prepared to work, you'll be glad you did. Because of the nature of this workshop, the participants are strongly encouraged to have a work in progress or a very strong idea of their people and the "shape" of their story. I look forward to seeing you.

Praise for Jodi Henley: “I'm so glad this story is FINALLY going somewhere! I've been working on this thing for like 4-5 years and then Jodi came along with her organic structure and BOOM! I always felt like this story could be something special but I just never felt I was ready to work on it. Jodi is a wealth of information”--Lauren Murphy, author of Cara’s Christmas Fantasy
