Putting Conflict on the Page

May 18, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Online Classes tagged as , ,

Presented by: Melinda Curtis

Date: June 1 – 30, 2022 (one month)

Pricing: A2P Member fee: $15

Non-A2P Member fee: $30 

About the Workshop:

Conflict is what keeps someone reading or watching your work from start to finish. But how do you set up conflict throughout your script or story pages without slowing the pace or being repetitive? Join this interactive class where you’ll explore internal and external conflict, and:

  • Sharpen your awareness of conflict in the work of others (if you see it, you can do it!);
  • Diagnose “flat” scenes;
  • Strengthen your understanding of the changing layers of conflict in the three act structure (conflict isn’t the same on page 1 as page 50); 
  • Which can be used to develop conceptual conflict journeys for your characters; 
  • Create a mini-draft of your story. 

About the Presenter:

Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today Bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. A hybrid author, Melinda has written for Harlequin, Grand Central Forever and Caezik Romance, mostly sweet romance and sweet romantic comedies. One of her Harlequin books – Dandelion Wishes – was made into a 2020 TV movie – Love in Harmony Valley. She recently came to grips with the fact that she’s an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than movies made from her books or jet-setting on a potty.

From Screen to Page and Screen

Presented by: Meredith Bonds

Date: May 2 – 13, 2022 (two week)

Pricing: A2P Member fee: $10

Non-A2P Member fee: $25 

About the Workshop:

You’ve written your book, you’ve gotten it professionally edited, you’ve got a gorgeous cover, and now all you want to do is hold it in your hand and bask in your glory. But how to get it from your screen to that of thousands of readers out there? How do you get it into print? I use two programs, one for print and one for ebook—Microsoft Word and Jutoh. In this course, I will teach you to use these two programs to produce a beautifully formatted, professional-looking book to upload to Amazon, Apple iBooks, Ingram Spark, and any other e-retailer where you plan to sell your work. Take control of how your book looks and update it easily by learning to format.

About the Presenter:

Meredith Bond is an award-winning romance author. She has been both traditionally and self-published and has written over thirty books, including three works of non-fiction. After teaching writing and self-publishing since 2005 both in person and on-line, she now owns and runs her own formatting and coaching business, Anessa Books, where she not only makes the words of her clients look beautiful on page and screen, but guides authors through the sometimes complicated process of writing and self-publishing.

She blogs every Sunday morning on writing and publishing topics and hosts a podcast, The Writers’ Block Party with Pru Warren. Learn more at http://anessabooks.com or https://meredithbond.com

Staring at a blank screen is unproductive. Let me teach you how to get past the roadblocks, get your hands back on the keys and fill that screen with words.

This workshop will provide you with tools and exercises to help you—or your reluctant muse—climb out of the ditch and back up onto the road.

About the Presenter:
