How to Write a Series


Learn how to write a series by exploring how to use outlines, book bibles, and subplots to keep each book consistent, but also fresh and exciting. We will also cover how to avoid that middle book slump and nail that cliffhanger ending. Walk away with a resource list that includes recommended craft books and websites for further research.


Wednesday, November 3, 2021. 6 pm CST. Webinar will be recorded.


Shannon will be open for critiquing MG and YA  manuscripts.


In addition, Shannon Thompson is KSMO’s 2022 Writer Mentor! She will be mentoring one lucky KSMO member with their YA manuscript! Applications open November 7th! See here for details!
