Writing is one of those careers where you spend a lot of time and money learning the craft at your own pace and on your own terms. I’ve spent nearly a decade learning the various aspects of writing craft, writing as a business, and marketing, and I’m still learning. It is my hope that the workshops below will aid you on your writing journey and save you some of the learning curves I had to experience all at an affordable price. I have purposely priced these workshops low because we are all on budgets, and 99% of us aren’t making what Stephen King or J.K. Rowling makes. New workshops will be added as I have time to make them.


Workshops are grouped by one of the following topics: Writing Craft, Business, and Marketing.

If you are putting together a retreat or group event and would like me to Zoom in to teach or would like to use a video to share with your group, please use the contact form so we can work it out. A lot of time and effort went into making these workshops.

Writing Craft Workshops

Plotting 101: A Pantser’s Perspective –What is plotting? Why does it even matter? It all boils down to story structure. Understanding story structure is a crucial skill for every author. Even pantsers must adhere to it if they hope to be published. Yet, creating a story without a muddled middle or an anticlimactic ending takes diligent work and a thorough understanding of structure. Using the movie Shrek, we will break down the four-part story structure and how to apply it to plotting a book. This workshop is hands-on and offers a chance for you to brainstorm a story as we work through the presentation.

Length: 40 minutes, not including the pause time for hands-on practice

Additional Resources included: M&M Plotting Worksheet, Four Part Structure Overview, Detailed Four Part Structure Breakdown

Price: $15
