Please join us March 15, 2014 to hear Patricia Burroughs
The Art of the Storyboard
Screenwriters and filmmakers have used storyboards for decades, but most novelists have come to the game lately. Join Patricia as she demonstrates various plotting techniques [including Blake Snyder's Save the Cat and Chris Vogler's Writer's Journey] using storyboards, index cards, post-its, and more. This is plotting as you’ve probably never seen it, and you will walk away with new techniques for your arsenal.
And here's some bio information:
Patricia Burroughs—Pooks—began her writing career in romance with five published novels. She received nominations and recognition from "RT" and "Affaire de Coeur," and was a finalist for Romance Writers of America’s Rita before succumbing to the dark side—screenwriting. She's the only writer in the history of the Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting [Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences] to be a Finalist with two different scripts, and won with an adaptation of her first romance novel. Uncredited but paying work followed, and she was happy with her Hollywood dreams…
Until one day she woke up with a new story rooting itself into her heart, a story that couldn’t be told in a script but needed many more pages to spread out, flex its muscles and take wing. Her fantasy trilogy begins with This Crumbling Pageant, April 2014 in print and digital.
And yes. She really does answer to Pooks.
