Come See Me At The Writing Workshop

FWA workshop

I’m at it again!

I’ll be presenting “Pacing” at the upcoming FWA Writing Workshop on April 28, 2018.

Yep. People are gonna pay to listen to me talk again – and you could be one! I’ll be dazzling attendees with my presentation, then dazzling the bartender – and possibly you – in the lounge afterward.

Seriously, I’m flattered to be asked to present these topics, and you’d benefit for attending.

Pacing

Story pacing—keep a reader glued to their seat and turning pages. (That one’s by me.) But I’ll be sitting in on some of these other workshops, too:

Arcs – by Jade Kerrion

All good stories are propelled forward by conflict and change. In this session, discover the importance and the difference among character arcs, story arcs, and series arcs. We’ll also discuss how to seamlessly blend all three into riveting chapters and page-turning stories.

Tropes – by Tracie Roberts

Tropes, when used appropriately, can help authors meet the expectations of readers and heighten the reading experience. In my presentation on using tropes in writing, I will explain the difference between cliches and tropes, assist attendees with identifying tropes and avoiding cliches, and model how to rewrite common tropes with a fresh twist. Attendees will have the opportunity to put into practice what they learn.

World Building/Setting – by Jennifer Siddoway

How to create a world your characters and readers will never want to leave.

Fee

Yep, you gotta pay. But it includes a continental breakfast, lunch, and beverages
$89.00 for a FWA Member & $109.00 for a Non-member

    I have decided not to attend the Florida Writer’s Conference this year, but that doesn’t mean YOU shouldn’t go! Friend of Scribbles on Cocktail Napkins, Dan Alatorre will be a presenter again this year, and the 3 1/2 day conference is only $109 for all non FWA members.
    It looks like organizers have already lined up some fantastic workshops.
    Connecting with other authors at writing conferences is a great way to fuel your creativity. So, check out the Florida Writer’s Conference this year!
