We often assume suspense—the anticipation of what happens next—is what keeps readers eagerly turning pages. As writers, we devote a lot of time to constructing a plot. A causal chain of events is important but it’s only one question—and often not even the most important one—for writers. What are the important questions? What questions should you be asking in your work? Which questions do you need to answer and how and when should you answer them? Join Rita Mae Reese to explore these crucial questions at the heart of any good story.

This session will be held in person Tuesday, August 13, 10 – 11:30 am
