Surprise & Delight Your Readers on Every Page

The element of surprise isn’t just for suspense writers. It’s not even just for fiction. Whether we’re reading a humorous essay, a heartfelt memoir, or a page-turning novel, we love the build of anticipation, the satisfaction of the unexpected—and the best writers challenge themselves to deliver that on Every. Single Page. This interactive workshop uses prompts, examples, and tips to help you master tricks—big and small—for keeping your readers on the hook. You’ll twist turns of phrase, uncover your character’s secrets (even if that character is you!), pull the rug out, and leave with plenty of ideas for adapting these techniques to your own works-in-progress.
