Sign Up for the Nevada City Scene Mastery Boot Camp!

Time is running out to sign up for our Scene Mastery Boot Camp in Nevada City, CA. My co-instructor, Catharine Bramkamp, and I are putting on seven—yes, seven!—all over northern California.

Over the last few years, we’ve been doing boot camps in South Lake Tahoe, CA, just for plotting. But last year we added a Scene Mastery Boot Camp.

Scene Mastery Boot Camp ~ Nevada City, California

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing information about the 2019 writing boot camps. My co-instructor, Catharine Bramkamp, and I are putting on seven—yes, seven!—all over northern California (though, if you and your writer friends are interested in hosting us to teach one in your area, contact us to discuss!).

Why? Because they really want to get their novel plotted, and they want hands-on, in-person help. They want to experience the amazing process of spending three full days not only plotting their own novel but engaging in the process of generating ideas, harnessing creativity, and forming it into something organized and downright fantastic.
