The Kiss between Plot and Character
with Best-Seller Joshua Mohr
Sunday Jan 15th 12-4 p.m.
Learn an exciting new approach to writing from an author whose books have been praised by The New York Times, The Sf Chronicle, and O magazine. Josh Mohr’s unique voice won him the Northern California Book Award. This Sunday he teaches what he calls plaracterization (plot + characterization).
The best plots aren’t controlled by the author. They spring from the characters themselves. The writer masterminds all things, yes, but the more we as writers realize that our characters are sovereign beings with independent consciousnesses, the better prepared we are to traverse plaracterization. The third Sunday in January, let Josh Mohr show you how to apply this technique to your own writing.
