Have you ever written a story that almost works and then been unable to fix it? Have you ever stared at the blank page and wondered where to start?

Either way, the ED ACE tool presented in this seminar by award-winning writer Eric Witchey will help you find or untangle the heart of your story.

Eric’s understanding of how the reader processes story internally and what that means in terms of technique for writers who want to wow their readers has been distilled into this simple, extremely powerful tool. Once you see it work, you will see it at the heart of every story, memoir, TV show, and film.

This seminar will include some theory, some demonstration, and a lot of fun hands-on experimentation. You will leave with insights into the heart of your stories and a useful tool to create them.


This stand-alone workshop will offer participants 2 hrs of focused instruction, and give writers who are interested in the Fiction Fluency Seminar Series an opportunity to meet Eric and experience his teaching style. Eric will answer questions about the Fiction Fluency Seminar Series after the workshop.
