This year, the plot summit features 37 speakers and 44 sessions over five days. There are talks on historical fiction, romance, uncanny romance, literary and experimental fiction, YA, crime, space opera and more. Speakers will teach sessions on action-packed tales, character-based stories, and braided narratives.
Attendees of Escape the Plot Forest 2023 get access to Daniel’s short story guide and bonus video lectures on getting published, planning a fight scene and more.
Each day of the event contains lessons on planning your novel, from building the foundations of the story to adding in complications like genre-specific plot points, amazing scenes, and compelling characters. The summit will close with talks about building a plan for your writing life and reflecting on everything you’ve learned.
There’s a free pass that allows live access to the sessions and replays for 24 hours after. The paid passes provide lifetime access to all recordings.
