Writers Night Out September 21, 2022

 7:00 PM on Zoom


The inciting incident is an important beat in your story that moves your protagonist toward a new course of action. It’s a gateway scene from the “before to the after” for your characters, from the past to the future. Editor Jacqueline Cangro will debunk the myths about inciting incidents and review examples from published works. Then she will unpack recommendations for making your story’s inciting incident dynamic and compelling.
