New York Times bestselling YA author Amie Kaufman takes you to the genesis of a story and explains how to get off to the right start. Where should you draw inspiration? Who is your protagonist? What incidents will shape the storyline? Kaufman co-authored the Starbound trilogy and Illuminae, which have both been adapted for the screen. She will give you tools to find your voice. Arrive with a blank page; leave with the beginnings of a story.
