Workshop Topics

I am a teacher at heart (and in real life) and love speaking at workshops, on panels, and to groups of all ages. I hold an MFA in Fiction from the University of California Riverside as well as secondary education teaching credentials in California and Texas. I have ten years of teaching experience in creative writing and literature. My workshops are craft driven, fun, and interactive! If you are looking for a speaker or workshop instructor, please see some of my craft workshops below. I am also happy to customize or build workshops for your group.

If you are interested, please send me an email through my ABOUT page or directly at connect (dot) acharney (at) gmail (dot) com.

What is the Hero's Journey ... the one myth to rule them all? How can you use this story structure to take your writing to the next level? Explore the plot structure and archetypes to create exciting prose that will resonate with your reader. (Bonus this workshop features a Hero's LARP) 

Path of a Hero

Whether romance is your A storyline or your B storyline, explore how to weave a strong romantic arc into your story. This goes way beyond a three-act structure into the romantic beats that must be hit.

ALSO... learn about the women's fiction genre in Not Your Grandmother's Bodice Ripper! 

Weaving in Romance

Go beyond the what and enter the world of why. This workshop is aimed at writers and readers who would like to work on critical analysis of story to take their own writing to a deeper level. Discover not just what an author is saying in their writing, but why they make specific choices to develop theme, character, plot, and setting.
