Invitations, Echoes and Explanations: Great Fiction Titles with Anika Carpenter

Invitations, Echoes and Explanations: Great Fiction Titles
Great titles come in many forms. Some are so intriguing, so wildly unusual/witty/powerful that you simply HAVE to read the story they’re attached to. Others sit quietly above a flash echoing the heart of the story, drawing you back to subtle but vital details, revealing something new when you go back to the start – as we do with a really good story. Others foretell/explain/position all are integral. In this two-hour session we’ll look at examples of titles that work had and work well, discuss our own experiences of ‘title wrangling’ and do some exercises that explore different ways to find the right titles for our stories.

Date Saturday, April 23, 8 AM PDT / 11 AM EDT / 4 PM BST
