Save the Date!

Valley Forge Romance Writers

announces a "Working Lunch Workshop"
with story coach and bestselling author 
of Story Genius and Wired for Story


Lisa Cron



Wired For Story: How to Become a Story Genius

Every writer wants two things: to tell a story that hooks readers and never lets them go, and to find a way to accomplish that without going through the long slog of endlessly writing draft after draft. This workshop will give you actionable ways to meet both goals. Instead of rooting around in your “plot” for the story, you’ll unearth the key elements specific to your story that will then create the plot, bring it to life, drive it forward, and give it meaning.

You’ll be able to zero in on what your story is actually about before you write word one, or if you’re in the midst of your umpteenth rewrite, before you write another word. 

You'll not only produce a more powerful novel, chances are you'll drastically reduce your rewrite time.
