This is an in-person event.

This free workshop is brought to you by Springfield Public Library and Wordcrafters in Eugene.

Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, this two-hour plotting workshop gives you more than a mere outline. Using Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, 3-act structure, and a screen-writing scene card, you will learn how create a framework for your story, and you’ll get tools to plan out your novel ahead of time or guide your story discovery as you go. Perfect for those participating in November’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) or anyone who needs help creating the skeleton for their novel.

What is NaNoWriMo? That’s short for National Novel Writing Month. For the month of November, participants from around the world (affectionately known as Wrimos) gather online and endeavor to write their own 50,000-word novels. It’s a month of enthusiasm, determination, and ferociously fast writing. If you enjoy a challenge, or just need a deadline, the NaNo challenge is for you!
