CRAFT SESSION 1 (10:00 AM)

WHO’S TALKING? WHO’S SEEING? WHOSE STORY IS IT?
Session Leader Kate Flora

This workshop will explore the choices—and conventions—of point of view as it is commonly used in mystery fiction, thrillers, and suspense. How does a writer decide whether to use a single point of view; first person or third person, multiple view points, or an omniscient author telling the story. What are the advantages, limitations, and challenges.


CRAFT SESSION 2 (11:15 AM)

YIPPEE-KI-YAY!
Session Leader Chris Holm

Action sequences are a staple of modern storytelling—but, too often, they’re treated as a narrative afterthought. Without concision, clarity, and compelling stakes, scenes intended to thrill can come off muddled and exhausting. This session will focus on the elements all great action sequences have in common, and the techniques their creators employed to achieve action immortality.
