two-part workshop with Angela James
November 14, 2020
SPECIAL ONLINE MEETING via Zoom
PRESENTER: ANGELA JAMES
FINDING YOUR WAY TO THE PACING SWEET SPOT
Better understand what editors and agents mean when they reference a book’s pacing. Learn what to look for in your own manuscript when it comes to figuring out pacing, structure and how to make it all work together.
This workshop defines frequently used terms (starting with pacing), offers insight into what pacing should look like for an author’s unique book, and gives concrete, actionable takeaways and next steps for working on pacing.
MAKING A PUBLISHING PIVOT
Publishing changes fast and writers often find themselves asking “what’s next?” Join Angela James for a one-hour conversation on what a pivot might look like, why you may want to consider a pivot, and how to develop a plan!
