Bring Your Novel to Life with Screenwriting Techniques

November 7, Tanoan Country Club, Albuquerque, NM

A Writer’s Workshop with Award Winning Novelist and Screenwriter

Alexandra Sokoloff

Bring your novel to life with screenwriting techniques

Are you finally committed to writing that novel – but have no idea how to get started? Or are you a published author – but know you need some plotting help to move your books and career up to that next level?

Screenwriting is a compressed and dynamic storytelling form and the techniques of screenwriting are easily adaptable to novel writing. You can jump-start your plot and bring your characters and scenes vibrantly alive on the page – by looking at your favorite movies and learning from the storytelling tricks of great filmmakers.

In this workshop, award-winning author/ screenwriter Alexandra Sokoloff will show you how to use techniques of film writing such as:

  • the High Concept Premise
  • the Three-Act, Eight-Sequence Structure
  • the Storyboard Grid
  • the Index Card Method of Plotting
  • as well as tricks of film pacing and suspense, character arc and drive, visual storytelling, and building image systems – to structure and color your novel for maximum emotional impact, unbearable suspense and riveting pacing, no matter what genre you’re writing in.

Whether you’re just starting to develop a book or script, or rewriting for maximum impact, this workshop will guide you through an easy, effective and fun process to help you make your book or script the best it can be.
