Master Class — Crack the Sea: Turn Your Secrets into Fiction and Set Yourself Free

Many of us carry family secrets and personal shame, believing either that we’re the only ones or that the cost of telling our story is too high. We become locked in this frozen sea, trapped by the truths we don’t speak. Fiction provides an out. It allows us to release our secrets without anyone knowing.

Not only is the process healing and the source of powerful fiction, it improves the world: Once we break free of the frozen sea, cracks start feathering out, making it easier for others to do the same. Join bestselling author, teacher, and TEDx presenter Jess Lourey to learn how to turn your own experiences into healing fiction. This is a hands-on workshop, so come with something to write with and on.

Topics addressed:

  • An eight-step method for turning your life into fiction
  • Applying A Story/B Story to plot
  • Writing a logline
  • Using genre to guide form

Every attendee will leave with a publishing resources handout.

Registration required, $95, limit 25
