The Art of Subtext: Writing the Unspeakable


To hide and suppress is human, so subtext is alive and well in our everyday interactions—but is it alive in your story? Are you getting the most out of your characters’ secrets, lies and hidden agendas? Are you leveraging their shyness and fear for all the delicious, page-turning tension they can provide? This workshop demystifies subtext: What it is, what it does for your story, how to write it effectively, and how to use it as a character discovery tool.
