Glenn Schiffman and Barbara Schiffman will be speaking on Transitions in your stories -- novels, short stories and screenplays. Think: Moving from future to past, past to future, time changes, place changes.... Getting from here to there on the page with grace and aplomb.
Come prepared to write and practice what you learn in this mini-workshop.
