2018 Gold Rush Writers Conference

Balancing Plot and Theme: How to Make a Novel Resonate


by

Erika Mailman


Erika Mailman
A workshop that illustrates how readers can walk away thinking about bigger questions--like what it means to be human.

Mailman incorporates thoughts about human truths while maintaining a tight plot. She explains, "We want our novels to be quick, page-turning reads, but we also want readers to walk away thinking about bigger questions about what it means to be human." She'll talk and lead participants through a few exercises to find a path with your own writing.
