Our guest presenter is C. Michelle Jefferies. This is a free event, open to the public.

Class description:
While it’s called several things, seven point structure, story structure, four part structure. . . What is should be called is a “How to bake the perfect book/muffin” . This basic but thorough structure/outline process has radically changed several, both famous and not-so famous, authors ways they approach a story. Perfect for both pantsers and plotters, it provides a basic recipe for a book while letting you add your own style and detail.


C. Michelle Jefferies is a creator. One who loves to create worlds and things of beauty.  A fan of several genres she has dabbled in many, although her first love and main work is in the secret agent/special team type story.  A martial artist and Yogi at heart, she is working on both her black belt and her Yoga YRT and SUP board certification. Drawn to the magick and beauty of the earth, this award winning author and geek mom spends her days writing, binding books, dyeing meditation wraps, and parenting in the wide open and windy plains of Wyoming.
