For writers in 5th through 8th grades
GET YOUR STORY STARTED!
Do you have trouble coming up with story ideas? Maybe you have too many? How do you know whether an idea will be a good one to write about? And how can you start your story in a way that will make it easier to keep going and finish?
In this session, authors Angie Stanton and Valerie Biel will talk about where to find ideas, how to sort through them, and how to make sure you start with a good hook and interesting event to set everything into motion.
