Join us on Monday, May 13, 6:30-7:45 pm (doors open at 6:15 pm) for a special meeting as Fonda Lee talks about the topic of pacing.

Pacing is one of the most subjective and difficult aspects of storytelling to get right. What is pacing? How do you know what the right pace is for a story, and what techniques can you use to speed up or slow down your narrative? Award-winning novelist Fonda Lee will break down how genre expectations, structure, dialogue, and more all affect the pace at which your story unfolds for the reader.
