Save the Cat Prepares for NaNoWriMo

  • October 01, 2021
  • 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
  • 236 Walnut St, Fort Collins, CO 80524

Registration is closed

The Save the Cat! methodology for screenwriting describes ten basic story genres (Monster in the House; Dude with a Problem; Golden Fleece; etc.) Each can be broken down into 15 plot points or "beat" that define their genre.

In this workshop we will help you determine which genre best fits your story and how to outline your manuscript using the 15 beats. We're using this workshop mainly to gear up for National Novel Writing Month (beginning November 1st), but it is open to anyone wanting to do some serious outlining.

Come prepared to workshop your story ideas!

This event will be in person at the Happy Lucky's Tea House in Fort Collins. We ask that all attendees wear a mask regardless of vaccination status to help everyone stay safe and healthy. 

Please RSVP!
