FREE MINI-SEMINAR FOR WRITERS

SUNDAY, MARCH 10; 2-3:30 PM

Antioch Writers Workshop will provide a free mini-seminar for writers. The presenter will be CHRISTINA CONSOLINO and the title is "Tension: What It Is and How to Create It."

Tension is crucial for any good story. It helps the reader invest emotionally in the story, and it keeps the reader tethered to the narrative, turning each page and moving chapter to chapter. Christina will discuss effective strategies to ramp up the tension in your writing. Bring your laptop or journal, as there will be opportunities to write.

Christina Consolino writes women's fiction, YA, and personal essay, and has been published in Brevity Blog, HuffPost, Tribe Magazine, Flights, and Literary Mama. She teaches writing classes at Word's Worth Writing Center and is Marketing and Communications Manager for the Brunner Literacy Center in Dayton.
