While we’re all in lockdown, you can keep up what’s going on with me and get automatically entered in a monthly drawing for a $20 Amazon gift card by signing up for my newsletter.
I’ll also be taking my Story Structure workshop online, so read on to find out how you can join in!
Due to travel restrictions and safety measures to reduce the spread of Coronavirus:
- Left Coast Crime in San Diego has been cancelled.
- Stokercon UK and the Borders Writing Festival are postponed.
- Dublin Writers Conference and Bute Noir are still in flux.
New YouTube Channel!
Alex has started a YouTube channel where she’s posting videos of story structure and visual storytelling techniques. Just like taking one of her workshops, for the Coronavirus Age.
Supercharge your writing process and write your best book or script by using the storytelling tricks of your favorite movies.
Not just for authors and screenwriters, either! Lockdown is an excellent opportunity to bring film school into your own living room. Use these short, fun videos to get the whole family involved in analyzing and creating story—by watching movies together!
Get the starter pack of companion materials for the videos free by signing up for the Screenwriting Tricks email list, and you’ll also get notice of new videos as they’re posted.
You can find companion articles on Alex’s blog.
