Title:“How to Weave in Backstory (without losing your readers)”

Date: Tuesday, August 18, 2020

Time: 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET

Presenter: Tiffany Yates Martin

Cost: $FREE 


Your characters don’t just spring to life fully formed at the beginning of your story. Ideally, if you’ve developed them fully, they are “real,” fully dimensional people with complex backstories and experiences that have shaped who they are at your story’s “point A,” and inform the journey they take in your manuscript. Yet how can you fluidly weave all that depth and complexity into your story without stalling pace and story momentum by getting bogged down in info dumps, flashbacks, or just too much exposition? In this one-hour workshop, learn practical techniques for developing and revealing who your characters were and are without slowing down the story of where they’re going.


Tiffany Yates Martin has spent nearly thirty years as an editor in the publishing industry, working with major publishers and bestselling authors as well as newer writers, and is the author of Intuitive Editing: A Creative and Practical Guide to Revising Your Writing. She's led workshops and seminars for conferences and writers' groups across the country and is a frequent contributor to writers' sites and publications.
