A Writer's Best Friend - Show, not Tell (Virtual)

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Virtual Event
What's the hardest part of writing? Well besides...a lot. A concept that even the strongest of writers struggle with is showing, not telling. 

As writers when we tell we force emotions and thoughts onto the reader; however, when we learn to show, as writers, we do something amazing for our readers. We give them the power to genuinely connect, and love, our characters. 

Join this three-week program and learn the skills and tricks it takes to show, not tell your writing work!
