The Writing Life

Daytime Talk Series: Son of Plot, with SJ Rozan

Tuesday, March 7, 2023 - 3:30 PM | Whitridge Room | for members only | free of charge | registration required

A critical idea to understand when thinking about plot is the difference between plot and story. This session will underline that difference by discussing participants' solutions to the exercise from the first plot session (January 19). Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions related to the subjects discussed in the first session. Those who could not attend the first session are welcome, as the beginning of this session will include a recap of the first. There will be a handout, and probably the stegosaurus will make another appearance.

SJ Rozan is the author of eighteen novels and over eighty short stories, and the editor of three anthologies. She has won multiple awards, including the Edgar, Shamus, Anthony, Nero, Macavity; Japanese Maltese Falcon; and Life Achievement Awards from both the Private Eye Writers of America and the Short Mystery Fiction Society. She speaks and lectures widely and will be teaching this summer at the Art Workshop International in Assisi, Italy. Her latest book is Family Business and her website is sjrozan.net.

The Writing Life events in 2023 are generously underwritten by Jenny Lawrence.
