Vancouver: Creating Engaging Novels with Jessica Brody

Join us at our Vancouver Chapter Meeting!

Jessica Brody introduces novelists to the renowned SAVE THE CAT story structure method, which helps writers create engaging stories, compelling character arcs, and unputdownable novels. Jessica will walk writers through the “secret storytelling code” that lies at the heart of all great fiction and will demonstrate how the 15 “beats” of the Save the Cat! method can be used to plot, write, outline, or revise your novel, or simply jumpstart you out of writing slumps. This fun and informative presentation will inspire you and leave you itching to get home and start writing.
