KAPOW! Writing Action That Pops

John Hilary Shepherd
VP, Production & Development
New Republic Pictures

Sold Out - Waitlist Available

Picture this: you’re in the middle of writing an amazing action sequence—a fight scene, a car chase, or something completely new—when you realize you’ve been using the same three words over and over again to describe everything that’s happening. And how much action is too much action to include anyway?

Sound familiar? Don’t worry, we’ve been there, and that’s why we have John Shepherd here to help us sharpen up our writing!

In This Two Week Clinic, You Will Learn:

  • How to craft effective action that draws the reader in
  • How much description is too much and how to avoid overwriting
  • How to use action to further the story and characters
*At the end of the two weeks, you will walk away with a killer action scene as well as a strong grasp of how to write compelling action!
