Workshops at WHC

Greenlighting Your Novel

by David Farland


Join International Bestseller and World Renowned Writing Instructor, David Farland, for a mind-blowing workshop that will help you get your story on bookstore shelves--and into movie theaters. Dave has worked as a "greenlighter" for movie production companies and publishers, advising them on which assets promised the best returns--notably, he recommended Harry Potter to Scholastic as a lead title in the US, contributing to the book's meteoric sales.


Learn how to "Greenlight" your own novel--the process producers use to determine if a story is ideal for public consumption. You'll discover how to identify what sells and if your story has what it takes. Learn to write for the broadest appeal, to include the emotional draws every big story needs, how to edit and so much more. You'll be amazed at how much information is packed into this class--and how the lessons learned can take your career to the next level.
