What is a scene’s turning point, why do you need it, and how do you write it? How do turning points help you with your scene’s pacing and determine the scene’s most important moment? Helping us answer these questions is author Henriette Lazaridis.

Her work has been published in such  publications  as ElleForge, Narrative MagazineThe New York TimesNew England ReviewThe Millions, and Pangyrus, and has earned her a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artists Grant. Henriette received degrees in English literature from Middlebury College, Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and the University of Pennsylvania.
