There are plenty of guides for revising nonfiction, but what about fiction? This webinar will give you a plethora of practical tips on how anyone, regardless of experience, can improve their own work. From plot to character, scene structure to style, you’ll walk away feeling confident that you can make your story shine!

    Thanks again for your engaging presentation yesterday to the mystery-writing women of Colorado. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and learned some new tricks and tips that will surely sharpen my writing. My future readers will thank you!

    Very engaging and enlightening. Carly is a fun presenter (obviously from her time as a teacher). Fun exercises and great discussion.

    This was wonderful in helping me to imagine how to enrich my stories via the setting.

    Excellent presentation and content. Learned a few tips and was entertained to boot.

    Best session. Carly is a teacher so she knows how to make the topic fun and engaging. The material and the checklist she gave out are crucial tips for any writer.

    Very informative and well done!
