Secret to a Page-Turner

with
Elizabeth Stark

What hooks your readers and won't let them go? Some people say plot, some say character, but it is where these elements are inextricably linked that we find the secrets to the most powerful of stories. Discover the authentic internal and external struggles—and the necessary relationship between them--that drive your character, your tale and your reader inexorably toward a conclusion no one can foretell and everyone has to reach.

Elizabeth Stark is the host of Story Makers Podcast (StoryMakersShow.com), author of the novel Shy Girl (FSG, Seal Press) and co-director and co-writer of several several films, including "FtF: Female to Femme," a creative documentary, and "Little Mutinies," a short (both distributed by Frameline). She earned an MFA from Columbia University in Creative Writing and has taught at the Pratt Institute, UCSC, St. Mary’s, where she was the visiting distinguished writer, and elsewhere. She is currently producing a feature film called "Lost in the Middle," and finishing a novel.
