2017-02/25 Exciting Expository with Jennifer Silva Redmond
Clunky, obvious, “on the nose” expository is the bane of agents and editors—not to mention readers…In this workshop you’ll learn how to integrate backstory into your prose by employing “character reveals,” visual expository, and other tricks used by professional authors and screenwriters.
