From Parts to a Whole: Turning a Bunch of Essays into a Unified Book

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Why do some books of essays feel like collections of B-sides, outtakes, and orphans, while others carry the thematic and narrative satisfaction of a good concept album? We'll discuss vital techniques for conceiving, organizing, developing, and enhancing a collection of creative fiction into a unified whole. We'll also address how to balance recurring themes, maintain voice and tone, how to build bridges, and other topics.
