RWA U: Zoom 101

Did you know anything about Zoom this time last year? Author Elizabeth Schechter didn't either. Now, everyone knows Zoom, and everyone is using it. We have Zoom for work, for school, for religious gatherings, for socially distant celebrations and memorials. We're using it to maintain relationships while maintaining distance. In this class, we'll explore the use of Zoom as a tool for authors to reach out and form connections with readers in a time when reader events are becoming few and far between. We'll cover the basics of Zoom, and explore ways to use Zoom as part of our marketing.

Deep Dive: Crafting Deep POV Using Character-Driven Details

Have you ever felt so connected with a character that it was a shock to put the book down and find yourself back in your own world? In this master class with author Roan Parrish, you’ll learn how to sink the reader deep into your character’s head and heart through presenting the world as only your character can, no matter what POV you're writing from. We will do exercises on how to craft dialogue, description, and internal monologue using character-driven details; how to edit any paragraph in your book into one that immerses the reader in your POV using those same details; and discuss how deepening POV resonates with your book's themes. You'll come away with tools that will enable you to craft more complex characters, make those characters connect more deeply with readers, and edit your manuscripts to reflect that complexity and connection.
