Event Description

We must postpone this event!

At our September Westside Satellite for writers, you’ll get a chance to meet Madeline Dyer, a prolific author of Young Adult and New Adult Fiction. After a short interview by Satellite Host Robin Quinn, Madeline will walk us through a variety of narrative structures that writers can use when plotting their novels, memoirs, and more. You, as an author, can consider what might fit best as the underpinning of your books.

At our September Satellite, we will explore:

  • How Madeline has managed to build a story over her entire 7-book series in the Untamed World (includes the Untamed Series [YA] and Dangerous World Series [NA]).
  • Her thoughts on building a convincing dystopian world in novels and short stories.
  • How some classic structures found in books and screenplays, such as the three act and Freytag’s pyramid, work.
  • The framework of a number of plot structures you may never have considered before. These can work in a variety of book genres.

Just getting started on a new writing project, daydreaming about a future work, or are you looking for a new way to plot an existing book? Then this presentation is for you!

At the end of the interview and after Madeline’s PowerPoint presentation, we will take questions from attendees through the Q&A feature in Zoom.
