NaNoWriMo Workshop

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Get tips to plot your novel with Daryll Lynne Evans of Wordcrafters in Eugene.


Join Daryll Lynne Evans, Executive Director of Wordcrafters in Eugene, to get ready for National Novel Writing Month in November.

This fast-paced plotting mashup provides writers with more than a mere outline. Using Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, 3-act structure, and a screen-writing card trick, learn to structure a story’s framework. Plus tools to plan a plot in advance or to guide story discovery during the writing process.

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is held every November. Participants around the world (affectionately known as Wrimos) gather online for support as they each endeavor to write a 50,000-word novel. It’s a month of enthusiasm, determination, and ferociously fast writing. It’s perfect for those who enjoy a challenge, or just need a deadline!

Daryll Lynne Evans is the Executive Director of Wordcrafters in Eugene. Originally a playwright, she has taught and presented about writing widely, including at the Performing Arts Conservatory in Colorado, Purdue University, Loose Leaf Writing Series in Indiana, Willamette Writers, South Coast Writers, and Wordcrafters in Eugene.
