The Five Principles of Creating Clarity
May 4 (2 PM ET / 7 PM UK)

As writers, we often spend too much time focusing on what our ideas are instead of how to communicate those ideas most effectively. If we don't sharpen our sentences with our readers in mind, then our ideas will get lost and our writing will be less engaging.

In this actionable presentation, Hayley will walk you through five key ways to improve the craft of your writing. By the end of the session, you'll know exactly how to tackle your work to make it more powerful for your readers.

Ask a Book Doctor
Tension and Conflict 
May 11 (2 PM ET / 7 PM UK)

On the second Tuesday of every month, the ProWritingAid community is invited to bring all their questions to our favorite Book Doctor, Sally O-J.

Without a central conflict, your story won't go anywhere. Your conflict is what draws readers to your book, and what keeps them reading. Find out how to create tension and conflict in this month's Book Doctor session.
