“The Plot Summit: Escape the Plot Forest” is a free conference for fiction writers which will take place virtually on October 22-25, 2020.
During the four-day conference, attendees will learn how to stay confident while writing a first draft, build mystery, develop characters, structure a story around revelations, and earn their ending. On the final day, speakers will explain how to build an audience and market your book.
Attendees will have access to 20 live sessions, including: “Learn 7 Essential Keys to Planning Your Novel: Story Preparation for Pantsers,” a guided hands-on brainstorming and writing exercise session; “Getting the First Chapter Right—Let’s Talk About Scene and Structure,” a simplified approach to starting your book; and “Suspense and Intrigue,” during which writers will learn simple rules for creating page-turners that keep readers engaged in every scene.
Creator Daniel David Wallace has curated a list of presenters comprised of authors in various fiction genres, such as fiction writer April Davila, middle-grade fiction writer M. Shelley Coates, romance writer Kris Kennedy, and science fiction and fantasy book author Michael La Ronn, along with academic and professional writing instructors, and a panel of Sundress Publications fiction editors including Meagan Cass, Samantha Edmonds, and Saba Razvi.
