“The craft of writing a compelling narrative involves more than planning and pacing,” said McCabe. “Using symbolism and understanding archetypes increases the complexity and response of your readers.”

The talk will contain descriptions of archetypes and how they evoke unconscious emotional responses. McCabe will tell how a well-chosen character name enriches the meaning of a story and how the symbolic meaning of a word adds to a descriptive passage.

E-mail [email protected]and pay at www.trivalleywriters.org. The cost is $ 5 for members; $ 7 for non-members; and $ 3 for students ages 14-22.

McCabe is the author of the novel, “Quest of the Warrior Maiden,” which was named Best Historical Fantasy by the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association and an Honorable Mention from the Hollywood Book Festival.
