Mining the Hidden Gold: The Intersection of Concept and Premise

Conference Workshop

The vocabulary used to discuss "how we write stories" is often imprecise and distorted, to an extent that many writers don't understand (and thus, don't benefit from) the fundamental differences between concept and premise (yes, they ARE different animals), or concept and theme, or any other number of necessary story elements and skills.  This workshop will clarify the vernacular and deliver the power of understanding how these terms define very specific story nuances, the leverage of which can make the difference between a story that simply works and one that works well enough to stand out and find a publisher and a readership.
