Five Writer’s contributor Jennie Jarvis will be conducting a workshop at Megacon 2013.
Structuring the Character Arc Workshop (Friday, March 15th at 1:15pm)
Film writers think that, just because they have their basic three-act plot structure in place, their screenplays are destined to succeed. The problem with many scripts, however, can often come in those places between the plot points. How can a writer ensure that his or her story is moving forward in every scene, regardless of what happens with the plot? The answer comes in the shape of the character arc. This craft seminar will give writers of all genres (not just screenwriters) a tangible guide for creating a goal-driven character that keeps the protagonist and the story moving forward, and thereby keeping any story from dragging its feet!
There is also a chance that she will be teaching a second workshop on Saturday, but the details for this still need to be confirmed.
The conference runs from March 15th-17th at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. Registration and additional information can be found at
