About this OnDemand Webinar
Every great work of science fiction and fantasy starts with a solid narrative with unique characters. Once that's accomplished, the writer can build in conflict and a unique world in which that story takes place. All too often aspiring writers fail to approach their stories in that order.
If your story is either failing to come together or failing to sell, Phil Athans can help you focus your writing efforts on the core of your narrative. He then explains how to use that core concept to help you sell the finished work with a simply-stated but intriguing one-page synopsis.
