Just about anyone can come up with a great idea for a story. But what do you do with that idea? How can you turn it into a fictional work that readers may want to buy? What are the markets for your stories? Join two published authors for a week-long class that can take those quick thoughts and help you turn them into the beginning of a story—whether it’s a short story, a novel or a family saga. Get the basics of creating characters and learn how you can develop your plot.
