New Workshops!Lessons from Pop Culture: Sending Your Readers on an Unforgettable Thrill Ride, with Myra McEntireWe read to experience new worlds, to be transported, to escape. Careful pacing and thoughtful plotting can propel readers through a story, inciting them to come back for more. Using tips from authors Blake Snyder, Christopher Vogler, and James Scott Bell, as well as examples from the television showThe Vampire Diaries, and The Hunger Games book series, we will explore ways to strengthen your plot and crank your pace to breakneck speed. Your readers will never go to bed on time again.
Voice: How to Find Yours and Use It to Keep Your Audience Hooked, with Myra McEntireMany readers purchase a novel based on the first page alone, so the right voice can make or break you. Voice is difficult to define, but we know it when we see it. In this session, we’ll study examples of strong voice, and discover ways to develop voice through brainstorming, journaling, and mind maps. Learn how to apply your own personality to your work, and how to “rob” the personalities of friends, family, and acquaintances to make each of your characters unique.Labor of Love: The Creative Process from Conception to Completion, with Debra MoffittWriting comes from a mystical process of creation. Words appear on the page almost as if by magic. In this playful, interactive workshop, author, Debra Moffitt, takes writers on an exploration of the creative process from the birth of an idea to its launch into the world. She offers tools to tap into powerful resources of creative energy, get structured, create a writing discipline that works and get you on the way to finding the right agent and the perfect publisher. We'll also explore some basics of platforms and book proposals.
