Free Coaching Sessions For Fiction Authors at Leipzig Book Fair
Beemgee.com will be holding free coaching sessions for fiction authors at the Leipzig Book Fair 2017.
To apply for a session, submit your story outline by the 18th of March 2017, and you will stand a good chance of winning one of eight coaching slots of forty minutes each.
The makers of Beemgee.com will advise you about your story structure to help you make your plot more dramatic and your characters more engaging – in person, live at the book fair. The help will focus on how you want to develop the material, whatever the genre or format.
How to Enter
Outline your story as a Beemgee project. It doesn’t matter whether you do this with a free project (you can try Beemgee free at www.beemgee.com) or with a premium account. Your outline must have:
• A working title
• At least thirty event cards + their descriptions > complete Step Outline
• Three characters – two of them developed with the character tool, 50 % total progress
Send an e-mail including the project link and your name to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, send the e-mail directly out of the web-app using the share function.
The free coaching sessions will take place on Friday 24th March 2017 in the afternoon and on Saturday 25th March in the morning within the Leipzig Book Fair. The winners must be attending the Leipzig Book Fair. The prize does not include fair tickets or travel expenses.
The sessions are being held by Beemgee in cooperation with the author school Schreibhain in English or German.

“Figuring out the plot is not my favourite part of writing. But you can’t write a story without a plot. Beemgee has helped me sort out my ideas and capture moments of inspiration, even to overcome writer’s block. It’s an aid to structuring my work, and is highly recommended even for pantsers.” T.A. Wegberg, author
“The internal logic of a story is magical, like the structure of a spiders web. Beemgee is a wonderful tool to explore and get to grips with this complexity.” Amos Ponger, filmmaker
“I was surprised how much Beemgee helped us sharpen the profiles of the characters in our game. The easy interface is great, the info tips behind the question marks make it possible for a novice storyteller like me to find out about the basics of storytelling technique.” Niklas Bothe, Bearhands, creator of narrative video game Grand Values Monaco
“Beemgee really helps you figure out how your story can be dramatically powerful and make logical sense at the same time.” Andrea Katzenberger, Screenwriter/Director
