Winter School: Lessons from Commercial Fiction



Kate Cuthbert




No matter your chosen style or genre, there is so much to learn from your colleagues writing commercial fiction. Build great worlds like a fantasy author; learn to pace like a crime writer; access your characters' emotional landscape like a romance author.
