FREE | Reedsy Live – How to Outline a Novel

March 30, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

How to Outline a Novel | Reedsy Live
Join novelists Caroline Leavitt and Gina Sorrell as they discuss their different approaches to outlining a book.

About this event

We’ve all heard that there are two types of writers: plotters and pantsers. Well, what if you are neither of these? Is there another way?

Join Caroline Leavitt, New York Times Bestselling author of With or Without You (Algonquin), and Gina Sorell, the author of The Wise Women (April 5, Harper Collins), as they discuss:

  • Their different approaches to outlining;
  • When to use them; and
  • How to know which approach is right for you and your project.

As always, they’ll be taking questions from attendees about writing and publishing and answering them with their usual warmth, honesty, and candor. See you there!

Tuesday 30 March 2022 • Noon LA • 3 pm New York • 8 pm London
