Petaluma -Tension in novels, stories, and even memoirs is like the connective tissue that allows muscles to attach to bones, and thus flex their might. It’s the heart of conflict, the backbone of uncertainty, the hallmark of danger. It keeps readers guessing, and characters on their toes. Join Jordan Rosenfeld, author of nine books, including the brand new How to Write a Page Turner, for a fun workshop on mastering page turning tension: From the inner conflicts of a character's deepest psyche, to the mechanics of how you reveal information to the reader, creating tension is critical to crafting a story your readers can't put down. You don’t have to have a manuscript in progress to enjoy this workshop.
