How to Overcome Story Implausibility with Kathryn Craft!

Circuses that arrive by night, meteors hollowed out for low-tech space travel—how can we make our readers believe?

Join us, The Pocono Liars on Wednesday, August 5th, at 8 pm EST for our next Zoom Chat: How to overcome story implausibility. Our guest Kathryn Craft will explore concrete techniques that best-selling authors use to navigate the implausible.

Kathryn Craft is the author of novels The Art of Falling and The Far End of Happy (Sourcebooks), and chapters in Author in Progress and The Complete Handbook of Novel Writing (Writers Digest Books). Her 13 years as a freelance developmental editor inform monthly posts at WriterUnboxed.com, her Your Novel Year program, and her work with students enrolled in Drexel University’s MFA program. Kathryn is a member of the award-winning Tall Poppy Writers, and serves as the Women’s Fiction Writers Association's 2020 Guiding Scribe.
