The Craft of Writing Satisfying Story Endings

with Jes Trudel

How can you write a satisfying ending every time?

In The Craft of Writing Satisfying Story Endings, instructor Jes Trudel will introduce the Story Endings Matrix, a new tool to help writers explore the five different types of story endings. Jes will discuss story goals and story outcomes, and analyze the endings of published picture books to show the Story Endings Matrix in action. Jes will then discuss how to use the matrix to explore possible endings for your own picture book manuscripts, and techniques to stay focused on story goals and outcomes while writing.

"Thank you SO MUCH! What a fabulous webinar! This was energizing, inspirational, and an incredibly helpful tool to use immediately."
