How to Write a Great Book with Evan Winter

Description

Sure, this workshop’s title is a little ‘sensational’, but it really is important to understand what great might mean, what it might not mean, and how an understanding of both can help a writer tell the best story possible. Join acclaimed fantasy author Evan Winter as he explores at least one version of what telling a great story might be like so that you can do it in your own work!
