Master Class: How Do You Create Suspense? I’ll Tell You Later. [Benjamin Percy]

In this workshop on the art of suspense and momentum, we will discuss techniques to make your reader lean forward instead of back. We will cover a range of subjects – structural designs, set-piece moments, withholding information, backstory, the balance of emotional and physical beats, and more – and any lecturing will be rounded out by discussion and exercises. The workshop will focus on fiction, but it should be equally relevant to nonfiction writers and screenwriters.
