• Feb MSP Workshop: Pacing

    Online event

    The final season of Game of Thrones gave us a cautionary tale about pacing. Join us for a discussion about how to pace a story right and how to pace it wrong. How do you work within your reader's attention budget? What parts of a story should you exposition over? When should you use special techniques like in media res and nonlinear storytelling?

    We'll address these questions and more at the workshop.
