About This Class

Veteran author Susan Kaye Quinn's workshop for an Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Schaumburg chapter meeting.

Structure is the backbone of any good story and key to delivering an experience that leaves your reader happy… and craving more. But what happens when your story outgrows that short novella or even a full-sized novel length? Whether you’re writing a trilogy, a five-part series, or a nine-episode serial, structure is still your friend. Author Susan Kaye Quinn has nearly 50 titles to her name (twenty more under a penname), and she’s crafted stories in all those forms and more. Her talk will cover the essential structure of your story, as well as how to expand that into a larger storytelling framework. Bring your questions and prepare to dig into the deep storytelling craft every writer needs to keep their readers coming back for more.

Susan Quinn

Author and Rocket Scientist

Susan Kaye Quinn is a rocket scientist turned speculative fiction author who now uses her PhD to invent cool stuff in books. Her bestselling novels and short stories have been optioned for Virtual Reality, translated into German, and featured in several anthologies. Susan has been indie publishing since 2011, but she's not an indie rockstar or a breakout success--she's one of thousands of solidly midlist indie authors making a living with their works. Her self-publishing books are based on her personal experience in self-publishing genre fiction--she hopes they will help her writer-friends take their own leaps into the wild (and wonderful) world of indie publishing...and not only survive, but thrive.
