Northern Colorado Writers Conference Story Grid Workshop
May 4 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
PRESENTER: LS Hawker
Shawn Coyne’s Story Grid is a tool that breaks down the component parts of manuscripts and tells the writer what’s working, what’s not, and what to do to fix the problems and amplify the strengths. The Story Grid is a tool to re-envision and resuscitate a seemingly irredeemable pile of paper stuck in an attic drawer, or can inspire an original creation. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use the Story Grid and save your novel.
Through this demonstration of the Story Grid process, you will learn
- how to use the Story Grid spreadsheet for your own novel
- what a finished Grid looks like
- how it points out weaknesses in your manuscript
- how to make sure your story fits your genre
- the value of the long, arduous process of gridding your story
- how to revise your manuscript according to structure and plot
