What makes your story unique? Here’s a forum to share your narrative, receive encouraging feedback, and learn more about the art of writing. Join author and writing instructor, Lara Wilson, M.A., to discover new ways to engage with your writing project. Each month, we’ll examine a craft topic such as compelling characters, plot, pacing, dialogue and details. Learn how readers inhabit scenes through the senses, and how writers explore conflict to keep them reading. Feel inspired to write on! All levels welcome.
