One reason I want to offer this free webinar for fiction writers is because I have been listening to a series of conversations with Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, and other highly successful television series shows). I rarely watch television, not having grown up with one, and I have no interest in writing for this medium. But her advice that story informs structure resonated with me. Not for the reason she stated–essentially that each genre has its own structure–but because understanding why story informs structure is paramount to writers who want the power of their voice to drive their work.
In Why STORY informs STRUCTURE, we will look at story and structure together, using your questions and observations to discover how your story informs its structure through multiple layers of meaning and theme your voice creates.

I went into this webinar expecting nothing; I was looking for a better system, one that would make me more productive. My goal was to write words on paper with efficiency and skill. Instead I found a way to channel my own voice, to be present in my writing. My discovery was that this does not challenge efficiency, it broadens and enhances the concept. I’m a better writer for the experience.
Thank you, Shelley.
Neil, I am so glad you joined the webinar. Your writing–the little that time allowed you to share–was spot on. It contained everything essential for the reader to know who you are.
I really felt like I got a lot out of this webinar. The exercises were fun and revealing, and the guidance was exactly what I needed! I’m looking forward to another session soon.
Thank you so much, Stephanie, it was great to meet finally “in person,” even though we could only see a webcam icon that looked like a one-eyed minion–which I know is not your current look! 🙂
I was happy to hear the strength of your writing in the short piece you read aloud. xxxs
The time of your webinar conflicts with an important family event, much to my dismay. Will this be available at any other time/date?
I’m sorry we won’t meet on Sunday. At this time I am not planning to offer this webinar again but that doesn’t mean I won’t. Every webinar I do, whether for free or for payment, is an experiment in offering an alternative perspective to current trends in the writing community. The next webinar I’m offering is a week from Sunday on the 10th June but it is not free.
