Want to write a novel?

Do you have a great idea but don't know how to start?

Join award-winning author Mary Buckham on Saturday, Sept. 10 for her all-day workshop “From Thought to Plot.”

Whether you’re writing romance or mystery, paranormal or suspense, you’ll learn how to develop a budding idea before you begin to plot so you aren’t trying to shore up your story later. You’ll discover how to build a strong infrastructure with characters, conflict, and twist points to carry you on your way.

“Mary Buckham’s Thought to Plot workshop is a boon to all writers—published or not. She helped me to sort through all of the random, crazy ideas I had for the plot of the second book in my Deadwood Mystery series, flesh out the key turning points of the story, and create the plot outline I needed to write a strong follow up to my award-winning first book. Today, 31 5-star reviews later, the book is selling strongly and readers love it. I can’t thank Mary enough!” Ann Charles – Award winning author of the Deadwood Mystery series.

Register and enjoy a day of learning and fun with other writers.

All members of the public are welcome. The registration fee includes lunch.

Registration deadline September 1, full details at www.vicrwa.ca

This all-day workshop is sponsored by the Vancouver Island Chapter of the Romance Writers of America®, whose members include bestselling author Jo Beverley and local award-winning novelists Sharon Ashwood, Susan Lyons and Lee McKenzie.
