Mary Robinette Kowal - Unlocking Story Structure Using the MICE Quotient

  • February 01, 2024
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM


Registration is closed

In this workshop, we learn about the simple organizational structure of the MICE Quotient. Pretty much every story, fictional or nonfictional, can be explained through this fairly simple organizational structure. Together we learn how to make this structure work for you when writing.
