Full Day Writing Workshop with Shirley Jump


Full Day Writing Workshop with Shirley Jump

ORWA is thrilled to host an all-day writing workshop from NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Shirley Jump! In the morning workshop Shirley will present “Show Me You Can Write, Don’t Tell Me” and in the afternoon she will present “The Basics of Scene and Sequel.” 

SHOW ME YOU CAN WRITE, DON’T TELL MEHow many times have you heard this…and not quite known how to do it? Or gotten this comment back in a critique? This most basic of writing concepts can also be one of the most difficult to master in the beginning. Join New York Times bestselling author Shirley Jump as she leads an interactive workshop that gives you easy, manageable tips that will have you bringing your fiction to life right away.

THE BASICS OF SCENE AND SEQUELScenes are the building blocks of your book, and sequels are the glue that bring those scenes together. The trouble is knowing how to create an effective sequel that keeps the pacing and tension running, but also gives the characters and readers a little room to breathe. Learn the best balance of Scene and Sequel and how to use them to easily ramp up the tension and conflict in your novel in this interactive class with New York Times bestselling author Shirley Jump.

About Shirley Jump

When she’s not writing books, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump competes in triathlons, mostly because all that training lets her justify mid-day naps and a second slice of chocolate cake. She’s published more than 60 books in 24 languages, although she’s too geographically challenged to find any of those countries on a map. Visit her website at for author news and a booklist, and follow her on Facebook at for giveaways and deep discussions about important things like chocolate and shoes.
