NEAL SHUSTERMAN 

In an age where everything from video games to social media compete for teens’ attention, how do we get them to sit down and read a book? Award winning young-adult author Neal Shusterman discusses the craft of writing meaningful stories for kids and teens, and the challenge of keeping them interested in the written word.

“Deep Story Structure & Techniques” with CAROL HUGHES

What do Nora Roberts, Stephen King, George Lucas (STAR WARS), Stephen Spielberg (E.T.), Terry Russo (SHREK/PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN), James Cameron (TITANIC/AVATAR) know about writing that makes them the mega stars that they are? Are you interested in learning the secret techniques that each of these mega stars has in common? It’s not as hard as you think – not if you know the simple-to-master writing secrets that they know and haven’t shared with you.
