Every writer has heard the advice, “Raise the stakes,” but how do you do that? How do authors make their stories mean something, and get that page-turning excitement? In this workshop, Alex Kourvo will discuss raising the stakes, the importance of the midpoint scene, and why no hero wants to save the world.
