Sonoma County Writers Camp Virtual Session

May 19–23, 2021
Now and Then: Front Story and Backstory Team Up!

Our characters arrive at the start to our stories with all kinds of history, expectations, and misapprehensions about the world. As the events of the “front story” press on and provoke our characters, the backstory naturally arises. The two stories haunt, challenge, and change each other. Where does the backstory come in? How much does the reader need to know, and when? In this session, we will explore how backstory interweaves with the present action to create a resonant and dimensional journey that will leave the reader as transformed as the characters.

Cost: $995
Tuition for Virtual Camp is all-inclusive–for all workshops, panels, readings, yoga, etc., and is heavily discounted from our usual rates. You’ll also receive a fabulous goody box by mail in advance of our first meeting. Enrollment limited to 24!
